Do you have artistic talent? Do you have creative ideas or know someone who does?
If so, the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District could use your help. The district is now inviting submissions for its logo design contest. A new logo is needed to reflect and convey the positive message of the district’s new slogan, “Every Student. Future Ready. Our Promise!”
The contest is open to all district students, teachers, support staff, and administrators. It’s also open to any community member residing within the district boundaries. NLMUSD encompasses the cities of Norwalk, La Mirada, a portion of Santa Fe Springs and part of unincorporated Whittier.
“Our goal is to have a logo that represents all the great progress — and future potential — of our wonderful schools and students,” said NLMUSD Superintendent Dr. Hasmik Danielian.
All entries must adhere to the design guidelines and be received by Monday, Oct. 15, 2018. Submissions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or postal mailed or hand delivered to:Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District
The winning logo or logos will become part of the official identity graphics used by the district. The logo will be displayed on websites, social media platforms, business cards, stationery, banners, posters, souvenir trinkets and various other ways.
There are no age restrictions for participants. Students at any grade level can enter and participants may submit work(s) as individual entrants or as part of a group. There is no contest entry fee.
All submissions must be turned in with a completed entry form.
One or more submissions per person or group is acceptable but each submission must be turned in with a separate entry form.
The contest is now open, as of Aug. 21, and closes at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, 2018. Late submissions will not be considered.
All logo artwork must be original and pertain to the theme, “Every Student. Future Ready. Our Promise!” The artwork must be the contestant's original hand-drawn creation. The entry design may not be a copy or duplicate of any previously published art, including photographs.
All winning entries will become the property of NLMUSD, which will have the right to adapt, edit, modify or otherwise use the winning submissions in part or in its entirety in whatever manner it deems appropriate.
Entries will be judged on the following criteria: visual appeal, artistic merit, how well it promotes the district’s tagline, original concept, quality of design, and ease of reproduction.
A panel of district staff and community members will review all entries. The superintendent and executive staff will select the finalists. Finalist entries will be submitted to the Board of Education for review and approval at a designated board meeting. The winner will be officially recognized at a subsequent board meeting.
However, the district maintains the right to declare no winner if no artwork of merit is found.
