DES MOINES — Iowa State Education Association members around the state have used ISEA's student-designed stickers to celebrate student achievement and good work for over 29 years.

Now in its 30th year, the popular Design-a-Decal program helps give statewide recognition to young art students when their winning designs are printed on stickers and educators use them to give positive feedback to their students. With encouraging messages like "Way 2 Go" and "Super Cool," the stickers get used on everything from homework assignments, to papers and projects.

Tenth grade Centerville High School students Nathan Grothe with “Way 2 Go” and Daniel Berja with “Way Cool” both were named 2014 Design-a-Decal competition winners. Their teacher is Tatum Marcussen.

Students competed in three, grade-level categories: elementary (K-5); junior high/middle school (6-8); and high school (9-12). The 24 winning designs are printed in full color on sheets of one-inch square stickers and each design is featured twice.

The students who created the designs used on the decal sheets receive two plaques from the ISEA-one they keep and one to be displayed at their school.
