In one of her first moves as superintendent of Riverside Elementary School District 96, Bhavna Sharma-Lewis has created a contest to design a new logo to be used on district communications.
All current and former Riverside Elementary School District 96 students are invited to submit an entry to the Design the District Logo contest. Logos can be hand drawn or created on a computer.
The winning entry will apparently not replace the current logo featuring the Riverside water tower, which is on the district’s website. Rather the new logo will be used on all written communication from the district, including some new ventures including a district newsletter, a letter from the superintendent and a letter with school board updates, Sharma-Lewis said at the July 16 school board meeting.
Entries must be submitted on an 8½- by-11 inch sheet of thick white paper or card stock. Paper is available for students to pick up at the District 96 administrative office at 63 Woodside Road in Riverside.
Entrants are asked to submit another sheet of white paper with a description, in 25 words or less, of how their design reflects what District 96 means to them. All entries are to be submitted to the district’s administrative office by no later than noon on Monday, Aug. 5.
The winner of the contest will receive a $25 gift card and be recognized at an upcoming board of education meeting.
More details are available on the district’s website.
