ACCT Announces Student Logo-Design Competition for Community College Month

January 19, 2023 to February 14, 2023

Submission Period Has Ended — Winners will be informed the week of March 6, and will be announced nationally at the end of March. 


January 18, 2023 — The Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) is excited to announce the launch of a competition to recognize three community college students for their exceptional graphic design talents. ACCT is accepting submissions for Community College Month (#CCMonth) logo redesigns created by current or recent former community college students.

Each year, ACCT issues a comprehensive campaign communications toolkit that is used by hundreds of colleges as a starting point for their communications. The toolkit includes a #CCMonth logo that many colleges incorporate into their public outreach, usually alongside their own colleges’ logos. During each of the past two years, the #CCMonth campaign generated several million impressions, in addition to a great deal of local broadcast and online press, community events and other attention.

This year, we are looking to community college students to redesign this logo according to their visions so that we can bring attention to the talents of community college students and reward those talents.

A team of community college leaders will serve as judges and will identify one winning logo design and two runners up. The winner will receive a $1,250 cash award; the first runner up will receive $500 and the second runner up will receive $250. Awards are supported by ACCT, AnthologyCLARUS CorporationEdamericaEllucian and Ferrilli. All finalists will receive national recognition from ACCT.

The winning design will be credited to the designer and will be made available to the public for incorporation into campaign outreach materials, including both printed and electronic promotions. The association will credit the logo to the winning student in a press release, the association's magazine and website, as well as through public recognitions of the logo-design contest and the announcement of finalists.

The submission deadline was February 14, 2023.
