Students from the University of West Georgia had the opportunity to design a shirt for the annual Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, according to the Times-Georgian.

These digital media students competed with professional designers, and one of the students won. Senior Jessica Ferguson got the opportunity to watch 60,000 people wear her design as they ran the annual road race. She also received a $1,000 prize and was introduced during the event, according to the news source.

This is the second consecutive year that one of the students won the contest.

"It feels great to do it two years in a row," Clint Samples, Ferguson's teacher, told the media outlet. "It's a great accomplishment for the class and the student. These students are competing against professional designers and winning. We're very proud of them."

Prospective graphic designers may want to know what the job market will be like after they graduate. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment is expected to increase by 13 percent between 2008 and 2018.
