Two students of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh''s Reeve Memorial Union have earned four graphics competition awards at the Association of College Unions International''s Region Eight Conference held earlier in the month.

Jason Kobishop, a senior of UW Oshkosh''s marketing program, and William Kaul, a graphic arts major, were awarded two first- and second-place awards for their contributions.

Kobishop took home top honors in both the logo and multimedia design categories while finishing second in the multimedia design category. The Oshkosh native''s entries included multimedia videos for the school''s homecoming game and a campus fair, as well as a logo for a university-run late night busing system.

Kaul took home second place in the three-or-more color poster competition for a controversial poster advertising a University Speaker Series debating Pornography.

The ACUI Region Eight Conference is designed to recognize the talents of graphic designers and annually accepts a large field of applicants representing 33 schools from Michigan, Chicago and Wisconsin.

Both WU Oshkosh students have participated in the design training at the Reeve Memorial Union for many years.
