On the first day of of the 2016/17 school year, the WPTSO began it's Logo Creation Campaign. This campaign was school-wide and open to all WCS students. We asked students to design a logo that represented who we are, what we do and who we serve.
The contest was a huge success! Thank you to EVERYONE who contributed their artwork. We had close to 20 thoughtful and creative logo submissions from students spanning grades 3 to 12!
Of those submissions, artwork was narrowed down to 6 finalists after a thoughtful and detailed review of each design by committee members. The committee was formed of 3 board officers and a student representative (not related to any of the artists who entered the contest). 6 finalists were narrowed down to 1 contest winner and 3 honorable mentions. Of those 4 winners, students from elementary, middle and high school were represented.
Each student who entered the contest received an award for participating and a letter of recognition for their design.
The WPTSO would like to thank Northwaters Wilderness Programs for sponsoring the logo contest and helping to purchase (and assemble) the awards. Here is a list of the criteria we asked students to consider when designing their logo:
Target Audience: The logo needs to appeal to Westport parents, teachers, students and community members.
Values that need to be communicated through the logo: We are a school based, parent-teacher-student organization in the Champlain Valley region of the Adirondack Mountains with a mission to strengthen our school and community.
Stylistic Preferences: We are looking for a logo that is bold and eye catching, with clean lines related to youth, our beautiful location and our focus on education & community.
Colors: All colors schemes will be accepted as long as they enhance the message you are trying to create.
Other Information: The logo needs to be usable for print material, our website, social media and ‘wearables’. It can be round, rectangular or square in its dimensions but should be contained to a specific shape.
