Logo Design Competition


Submit a logo and you could win $50!


Northwestern’s Black Graduate Student Association will be hosting it’s 19th Annual Graduate research conference,  A Day in the Life of Us. This conference aims to (1) share the work of graduate students from across the Midwest of various disciplines, (2) provide an outstanding networking opportunity, and (3) to highlight the work of graduate students of color as well as graduate students whose work touches upon communities of color. This year, we are inviting students to submit a logo design that incorporates this year’s theme. The winner will receive a $50 visa gift card!


Broadly interpret our theme (A Day in the Life of Us) by sending us an illustration of what you think might represent the average day of a graduate student of color. A logo that incorporates multiple cultures/ethnicities and/or multiple disciplines will be highly favored.

Other rules:

1. Make sure your design is original and is not copyrighted material
2. If you reference the school, it must say Northwestern. Do not NU or any abbreviated version of the Northwestern University school name
3. No profanity or pornographic images or language.
