PSD Logo Design Challenge - Help Design Our New Logo!

Calling all Peninsula School District students! Our district has had the same logo for 20 years. It's time for a major update and we need your help! Create your best logo that represents our school district and enter it in the PSD Design Challenge. These logos will be used as design inspiration for our new PSD logo and students will each receive formal recognition at a future school board meeting and prizes from our local sponsors. Winners will also be featured on the district website, social media and brand launch video.

What Are We Looking For In Our New Logo?

The purpose of this design challenge is to highlight student artwork from across our district and to give our graphic designers inspiration for a new graphic to represent the Peninsula School District. The logo should meet the following criteria:

  • Creative and original design
  • Simple, clean, timeless
  • Incorporate the Peninsula School District name, spelled out
  • Reflects PSD's Strategic Plan, Mission and Vision
  • Reflects our entire community, both Gig Harbor and the Key Peninsula
  • Must work well in color (use up to 5 colors) and black and white designs
Who Can Enter?

Current Peninsula School District students. There is a maximum of two entries per student.

What Are The Submission Guidelines?
  • Logo artwork may be computer generated, hand-drawn or a combination. The design must be 2-dimensional and original work, not based on any third party designs, clip art, trademarks or copyrighted images.
  • Upload your files digitally or submit your artwork to your school’s front office. Artwork must be submitted on 8.5” x 11” heavy weight paper and may use portrait or landscape orientation. Digital pdf files of artwork should be submitted in both color and black and white.
