CAPTA is excited to announce that we are accepting submissions to the CAPTA Logo Design Contest! All CAPTA-affiliated tutors are welcome to submit a design.
The winning design will be featured on the CAPTA website, the CAPTA Facebook page, CAPTA business cards, CAPTA pens, and more! Submissions should include a unique image or symbol and both “CAPTA” and “The Capital Area Peer Tutoring Association.” The design should also work in both color and in black and white. Otherwise, there are no limits to the design!
We encourage tutors to read about CAPTA’s mission and vision to help inspire their design.
Submissions will be accepted from now until Monday, March 2. To submit a design, students should email their .JPG file to CAPTA.Connects@gmail.com and be sure to include “Logo Contest” in the subject line.
All CAPTA tutors and directors will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite logo design from March 3-March 6. The logo design contest winner will be announced on our Facebook page on March 7 and will receive a $10 Starbucks Gift Card.
Please see the attached flyer and distribute this information to your tutors. Questions? Please contact us!
