To commemorate this year’s special, although physically distant, 50th Anniversary meeting, the Alaska Chapter is holding two contests: a 50th Anniversary logo contest and an art contest! 

Logo Contest

A 50th anniversary logo that incorporates 50 years, our theme of “Remembering the Past, Preparing for the Future,” and the diversity of the people within our chapter and our state. The logo will be used for our 50th anniversary meeting swag that can be ordered online. It will be printed on t-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, and other items.

  • Logo should be one color (i.e., black with white or transparent background)
  • Clear linework
  • High resolution
  • Can be digitally or manually drawn/illustration
  • One submission per artist

Winner gets recognition, a t-shirt with their design, and $100!
