Fun New Contest

Are you creative? Do you like having the possibility of winning wonderful prizes? If so, I have a contest for you! Of course, you'll be up against the likes of my sister--and I have to tell you, she's amazing when it comes to talent and creativity--so you will definitely have to bring your "A Game". Of course, besides her--you have to create a logo that is even better than the current logo--and I have to sneak in my own humble opinion--the current one is awesome!!

What a great opportunity, not just to create, but to get your name on something really amazing if you win!

The contest is of course for the Ford Blue Oval Scholars. This is a wonderful scholarship program sponsoredby the Ford Motor Company Fund-so it's logo needs to be just as wonderful.

The prizes are great too. They are:

  • 1. First Place - Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design
    Premium = Retail $1,700
  • 2. Second Place - $300 for design software of choice
  • 3. Third Place - $150 for design software of choice
  • 4. Fourth Place - $50 Music Download Card
  • 5. Fifth Place - $50 Music Download Card
  • 6. Sixth Place - $50 Music Download Card
  • 7. Seventh Place - $50 Music Download Card
  • 8. Eight Place - $50 Music Download Card
  • 9. Ninth Place - $50 Music Download Card
  • 10. Tenth Place - $50 Music Download Card

If you are interested in participating in the logo design contest, you will want to visit their website for a full list of rules and regulations, but for starters you can enter up to three different logo ideas per week and all entries will be judged and selected by a panel of Ford Motor Company Fund employees and design experts. They will be basing their judgement on the representation of the Ford Scholars program, longevity and adaptability for use in different media, and positive visual impact.

It sounds like such a great contest, for a really great scholarship program--I can't wait to see the top ten!
