Squadron Emblem and Motto Design Contest

Springfield Composite,

Here is your chance to put your artistic talents to the test and to have your work seen for years to come.  It is time for a complete redesign of our squadron emblem, and I mean complete, new motto and everything.  This means you can enter a logo or motto or both so this completion really is for all members. 

               1.  Attached you find the Civil Air Patrol Heraldry Guide.  Paragraphs four and five have the guidelines that must be followed                              when creating your design. (see your email for PDF file)

               2. Keep in mind where we are and what our squadron does when coming up with your design.

               3. The design committee reserves the right to take elements from multiple designs.

               4. Once you submit your design it becomes property of Springfield Composite Squadron and the Civil Air Patrol.  The artist/s                             responsible for the chosen design and motto will receive proper creative credit for their work.

                5. You can submit multiple designs and motto suggestions.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.  Cadets,reply to this email so I know you've been informed.
