The Greenwich Dept of Human Services is looking for a new logo. Design ideas from students, ages five to 19, living in Greenwich, are eligible. The artist whose design is selected will win a $250 grand prize.
Students interested in submitting a logo design should create their design (digital format only in .jpeg, .png, .pdf or a high resolution image from Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign), complete the registration form found on the Department of Human Services website at greenwich.gov, and email the registration form and the design file to [email protected].
The contest is sponsored by the First Selectman’s Youth Commission and will be judged by a selection committee comprised of the First Selectman, the Dept of Human Services commissioner and members of the First Selectman’s Youth Commission.
All entries must be submitted by Monday, May 20, 2022. Complete rules and regulations are available at greenwichct.gov (search Department of Human Services Logo Design).
Logo entries must illustrate services the Department provides local residents and reflect the mission of the Greenwich Department of Human Services, which is to enhance the quality of life of Greenwich residents and meet basic human needs while offering services and pathways that build on clients’ strengths and lead to well-being and economic stability.
This vision is achieved through a robust and integrated system of services that are equitable, accessible and available. The Department’s values are: inclusion, respect, teamwork and open communication. The Department offers services that connect residents to the essential resources of the community. These resources provide the support to health care, education, employment opportunities, food, personal safety and shelter. The Department offers bi-lingual staff dedicated to help all residents.
The logo designs will be judged on relevance — alignment with the Department’s mission, vision and values; originality and aesthetic quality — how it commands attention, its overall display and visual balance of color and design, and its unified and appealing design.
“The logo should be easily recognizable as the Greenwich Department of Human Services,” said Demetria Nelson, the commissioner of the Dept of Human Services. “It should raise the visibility of the Department, its services and highlight the support that the Department provides local residents through community partnerships. We are excited to see what the students create.”
The Department of Human Services plans on using the new logo on its social media channels including Facebook and Instagram, on the Department’s Town website page, and in any media, online, print, merchandise or other collateral materials.
