Student Logo Contest

Denver, Colorado
November 5-9, 2014

The National Collegiate Honors Council is looking for creative students to participate in the 2014 Annual Conference logo design contest. NCHC member institutions are invited to submit up to two original, student-created logos. The student creator of the winning logo will receive complimentary registration to the 2014 Conference, a cash prize of $500 ($250 to the Student and $250 to the honors program), recognition in the online pre-conference program and in the final printed conference program.

Students designing logos should consider the conference theme, Thrill of the Climb, and conference theme below.

As we gather in Denver, the Mile High City lying at the foothills of the majestic Rocky Mountains, we are inspired by the challenges we face and the thrill of taking them on.


  1. The logo must reflect the themes and locale of the 2014 conference.
  2. The logo must be scalable–from as large as the front of a t-shirt to as small as the cover of the printed conference program and must render well in color as well as grayscale.
  3. The logo must be submitted by the honors director, dean or coordinator of the member institution accompanied by a cover letter on the honors program letterhead verifying the following:

The institution is a current member of NCHC.

  • The student is in good standing in the honors program/college during the current academic year.
  • The logo is the student’s original work and includes no copyrighted or otherwise protected information material other than the NCHC logo, if used.
  • The student understands that, upon submission, the conference logo becomes the property of NCHC.

The cover letter must also include the student’s name, complete mailing address, telephone number, and email address. Both the honors director, dean, or coordinator and the student creator must sign the cover letter. If the student needs an electronic copy of the NCHC logo to incorporate into the design, please e-mail the request to

Please note: Logo entries must be submitted electronically (pdf, jpeg, or tiff) by Tuesday,
October 15, 2013. Entries received later than this date will not be considered.

All documents may be uploaded or e-mailed. There is a limit of two submissions per institution.
