The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) is looking for our yearly logo to celebrate diversity within our agency and the Osceola County Community. We host a logo design contest to get the most authentic branding to represent our county. This contest is for all middle and high school students of Osceola County. The new logo may be used on our website, social media, marketing pieces, souvenirs, trinkets, posters, gifts, and anything else the agency chooses.
Prompt: Diversity in Osceola County

- You must use our agency’s colors (green, gold, and white). The Hex codes for our brand identity are #14340D, #C08F19, and #FFFFFF. You are free to use the blank canvas area for the design, keeping in mind cohesiveness with the diversity theme and the OCSO identity.
