Everyone knows that USAD is holding a 50th anniversary logo design contest, right?

Submissions due October 31 -- I heard there's only been a handful of submissions so far, so your odds aren't too bad! smile.gif I'm copying the details below (and you can find a PDF here):

50th Anniversary Academic Decathlon® Logo Design Contest
The United States Academic Decathlon® is celebrating 50 years and needs your help designing the logo for the 2018 USAD Nationals. We are seeking a creative, innovative and professional logo design to help promote the 50th anniversary of USAD and the 2018 national competition. The rest is up to you! This contest is open to current Academic Decathlon® students only. Please read below for more details regarding logo design, contest rules and submission requirements.

• Submitted as a high resolution .pdf or .jpg with 300 dpi or higher.

Logo Requirements
• Professional: This logo may be featured on our website, social media platforms and other mediums (collateral materials, t-shirts, etc.) Thus, the logo should be eye-catching, yet must still be legible.

Assuming that you've heard correctly about few submissions thus far, I wonder if USAD would get a better return if they offered a small prize? At the very least, they can offer to reproduce the logo on some free gear (t-shirts, duffel bags, YETI's, for instance) that they can give to the winning artist. Or offer the winning artists's school some resource guide packages for next year!

The information above says: "This logo may be featured on our website, social media platforms and other mediums (collateral materials, t-shirts, etc.)." I assume that includes the materials given out free to each team at Nationals? Perhaps not though, and I agree that some other reward would be nice as well!
