OHIO, USA — There are many tributes to our fallen heroes this weekend. And one Ohio high school student received national recognition for his creativity in saluting our troops
Harrison Rothschild entered the “We Heart Veterans Pin Design Challenge.” The contest invites students from across the country to use their STEM skills to create a Memorial Day pin using 3D design.
Rothschild’s pin was among hundreds of contenders for the award across the country. He said he designed it with his family and friends, many of whom are veterans, in mind.
“There are many veterans in my family. Both my grandfathers, several of my uncles, some of my cousins, and one of my very good friends. I wanted to make a pin that combined all the symbols of all the departments into one,” he said.
Rothschild and his co-winner from San Antonio were invited to the National Veterans Memorial and Museum to showcase their designs. He says this competition will be a good starting point for his future plans to be a biomedical engineer.
“It’s a really great jump for me,” he said.
