McHenry County College student Gabrielle Miller of Huntley won the 2017 anti-tobacco media design contest, sponsored by the McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH).

This year’s theme revolved around the saying "Don’t let your future go up in smoke." This year's contest was open to county high school students and McHenry County College students. Miller’s winning billboard style poster includes the slogan, "Don’t let your future burn away" and shows nine burning cigarettes, each listing something a smoker gives up—from quality taste buds to good health. Her design will appear on posters in local schools and possibly on theater ads, pending state funding. Her design has been posted on social media, the MCDH website and also appeared on an electronic sign in Crystal Lake in early spring.

Miller graduated from Huntley High School in 2013 and currently attends McHenry County College, where she is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and studies graphic design. View Miller's winning design on the MCDH website at www.mcgh.info. For information on MCC Graphic Design classes, visit www.mchenry.edu/graphic arts or call (815) 479-7521.
