Sussex Academy’s Elizabeth Bodio creates Balloons Over Sussex logo

May 7, 2019

Sussex Academy freshman Elizabeth Bodio has designed the official Balloons Over Sussex event logo.

Sussex Academy held a logo design contest for the event, and more than 20 entries were submitted. The graphic design team at Techno Goober judged the entries, and Bodio’s submission was unanimously selected as the winner. Eighth-grader Caroline Cosgrove won for the festival program cover design. Both students received gift card awards.

The Sussex Academy Foundation will host Balloons Over Sussex, a hot-air balloon festival, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 14 and 15, at the Delaware Coastal Business Park and Airport. The foundation is currently seeking event sponsors, crafters/artisans, entertainers and food vendors. For more information, go to
