There''s an adage about poker that says "sometimes it''s better to be lucky than good," though it may be better to be a bit of both - like Art Institute of Phoenix senior Ashley Scott, who won online marketing firm SpinSix''s first ever "Best Job in AZ" competition.

The winning submission was chosen from a field of over 100 web designers from across Arizona who were tasked with developing websites and specialized graphics for fictitious clients.

Scott, whose win has secured her a web-based Graphic Designer position and a $50,000 starting salary, will work part-time until her graduation in January when she will be promoted to full-time.

"Getting my name out there as a designer is really one of the biggest perks I think I could get," She tells AZCentral.com. "I thought I would be a good candidate because I''ve been through a lot of contests before. I really try to push myself to be better."

Scott is a veteran of design competitions having already won $33,000 in scholarships money in previous contests.

SpinSix will be sponsoring a second competition with the goal of finding a senior application director in the coming weeks.
