The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) is looking for our yearly logo, to celebrate diversity within our agency and the Osceola County Community. In order to get the most authentic branding to represent our county, we have decided to host a logo design contest. 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 that the agency chooses.
Prompt: Diversity in Osceola County
- Here are the guidelines and parameters that must be followed in order to be considered for this contest:
The Sheriff’s Office star symbol must be incorporated in your logo while following the guidelines that are given. We will attach the png file, along with the correct way to integrate the design.
- The logo must include the sheriff’s name, “Sheriff Marcos R. Lopez”.
- You must use our agency’s colors (green, gold, and white). The Hex codes are #14340D, #C08F19, #FFFFFF for our brand identity. You are free to use the blank canvas area for the design, keeping in mind cohesiveness with the diversity theme and the OCSO identity.
- You must submit the logo on a 1080×1080 px PDF. The PDF must be in a light gray color. Please include the name of the contestant(s), email address (es), and the school which the contestant attends.
- The submission must be the contestant’s own work (not copied/duplicated) from another design. Upon submission, contestants must affirm that the design is their own original work and has not been copied from others or from previous designs (including their own). Also, it must not violate the intellectual property rights of any other person or entity.
- Contestants must follow the prompt given, however, we encourage them to be creative and unique in their design! Contestants can allow their ideas, interpretations, and personality to shine through.
