Logo Contest

The Carolinas WPA Board Members invite submissions for the Carolinas WPA Logo Contest. While the current logo met the needs of the organization in its early years, we would like to replace the original logo with one that:

  • Incorporates the name “Carolinas WPA,” since the Council of WPAs often uses the CWPA abbreviation; and
  • Better reflects the organization and its representation of both North and South Carolina WPAs.

Logo submissions, which must be appropriate for both web and print materials, are due February 1st. Carolina WPA members who attend the 2012 Meeting in the Middle will vote for their favorite logo, and the winning designer will receive free registration, room, and board for the 2012 Carolinas WPA Fall Conference.

Please direct all questions and submissions to Jessie Moore, the Carolinas WPA Web and List Manager, at

For your reference, you can view the current logo on the organization’s web site in the top left corner.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
