Logo Contest for "Real Food for Kids - Montgomery"

"Real Food for Kids – Montgomery" is a grass-roots parent advocacy group working to promote whole, delicious, fresh foods in the Montgomery County Public Schools.
We are having a contest to design a logo for our group with a prize of $50 and invite students in the Montgomery County Schools to enter.

Logo Guidelines

The logo should contain our name "Real Food for Kids - Montgomery," no more than 4 colors and have a white background. The logo should be a scalable vector graphic in EPS format. The logo will be used online, in print and on items like t-shirts and water bottles. Flexibility is a key requirement, including the need to resize easily and to look good in black and white as well as color. No fine line or small detailed areas, as they won't translate well when the logo is reduced. Image integrity to be maintained from a size of 1" square (business card, letterhead, etc) to 8" square (tee shirt, signage) to a max of 12" (banner). The final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high quality printing. Because of the requirement to register the logo as a Trademark, entrants should take care to ensure that their entries are not in any way similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images. We advise against the use of halftones and gradients unless created inside a vector graphics program. The colors should be CMYK, no spot colors. A JPG file 1000 pixels square of the logo is also requested so that entries can be posted to our web site without the need for conversion. The logo should convey the purpose of our group, so appropriate colors and images are recommended.

The deadline for the contest is February 8, 2013. Entries should be submitted to by 5 p.m. on February 8 in a zipped file containing all versions of the logo (EPS black and white, EPS color and JPG color). The e-mail containing the logos should include your full name, the name to which you would like a prize check to be written in the case that your logo is selected, your grade, your school name and your phone number. By entering the contest you give all rights and ownership of your design to "Real Food for Kids - Montgomery." By entering the contest, you also agree to have your name, school and grade mentioned on our Facebook page, web site and in publicity in any media who cover the logo contest.
