Designs should be in full color and all graphics should be in the highest resolution possible, as the logo will be used in all promotional materials. Consideration should be given to the reproducibility of the design: clear, clean designs are the best for reproduction. Submissions must be accompanied by a detailed legend which credits all individuals who contributed to the design and describes the important components of the design.

The winning designer / design team will be awarded the $250 prize (if to a team, $250 to the team to be divided as the team chooses). Logo contest submissions may be sent via email to Shannon Mohrman In the case of large files, please provide a link to an FTP server or other alternate file transfer protocol.
