Alyssa Tschida

A project in her digital literacy class at Horizon Middle School has made Alyssa Tschida much more aware of the struggles many of her fellow students are facing.  The assignment helped her get a great seat for the upcoming Tigirlily concert too.

Alyssa designed a concert ticket as part of an assignment in her digital literacy class. Her teacher, Jason Wright, asked students to work on promotional videos, digital posters, hand-made posters, or tickets for the concert. More than half the class designed and submitted tickets. A committee chose Alyssa’s as their favorite.

“I worked on it for about a week, mostly in class, but a little at home,” says Alyssa. “I just liked the vertical picture because I thought it worked well with the shape of the tickets. Then I put the words around it so you could still see their faces. I like the way it turned out.”

Alyssa’s name is on each ticket, four of which will go to Alyssa and her family to attend the concert. The concert is a fundraiser for the Bismarck Public School’s Students in Transition program, which serves homeless and at-risk children. Jason says designing the tickets was a great way to teach marketing and sales, as well as the importance of giving back.

The Tigirlily concert will be Sunday, May 6 at 6 p.m. at the Horizon Middle School gym. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance at all Bismarck schools and at
