Financial Aid
Financial Awareness Logo Contest

 

Prize is a $500 Scholarship 

The Financial Aid Office is seeking entries for a creative logo to represent two elements:

1)      Financial Awareness

2)      The Financial Awareness Student Team

Our desire is to have a Financial Awareness logo that can be used by the Financial Aid office staff and the words “Student Team” can be added to, when applicable.

This logo needs to be somewhat compact as it will be used on business cards, publications,   websites, signage, etc. We want to “brand” our Financial Awareness and associated Financial   Awareness Student Team efforts with an easily recognizable and unique logo.
