Logo Design Contest for Ford Blue Oval Scholars

Posted by BenSpark on October 2, 2007

The Ford Motor Company Fund sponsors the Ford Blue Oval Scholars program. This program provides student scholarships. The program is embarking on something new with a web based place for Ford Blue Oval Scholars scholarship winners to network with each other, share information and learn about internships, jobs and community service activities.

The Ford Motor Company Fund is sponsoring a logo design contest to redesign the logo for the Ford Blue Oval Scholars website and other materials. This contest is open to amateur and professional designers, ages 16 and older. This winning logo will be very important because it will be used as the official logo for the Ford Blue Oval Scholars program. that means that it will be seen on the Web site and in all materials related to Ford Blue Oval Scholars. This is a huge opportunity for designers.

Here is the deadline information. The entries must be received by November 1, 2007. The winner will be announced December 1, 2007. you can sign up at the FordScholars.org website and register as well as download contest materials.

So what do you win other than having your logo be seen by many, many people?

The Grand Prize is Adobe Creative Suite 3 – Production Premium. Approximate Retail Value (ARV): $1,700.

The Second Prize is $300 towards design software of choice.

The Third Prize is $150 towards design software of choice.

And there are seven Fourth Prize winners who will receive $50 Music download cards.

That is a pretty sweet set of prizes and I know that being able to use a program like Adobe Creative Suite 3 would give anyone an edge with their design skills. The tools at your disposal are incredible. All you need to do is make a more impressive logo than the one at the top left of this post. That is the standard by which your work will be judged. Good luck.
