Logo For A New School

Recommended Posts

Here in Guilford County we have a new school being erected this summer named Northern Guilford High School. This is because my school, NW Guilford and our RIVAL Grimsley, are overcrowded and the school would ease growing pains for both schools.

However I worry for the students of this school. Why? Their high school is gonna end up being named something like the Vikings, Cowboys, or the worst, THE WHIRLEYS. This contest is to save these children from a life with the horrible memory of a high school with a dud logo and nickname.

Your mission in this contest is to pick a nickname for Northern, and along with it a logo, a wordmark, football jerseys (just home and away), women's golf polo shirt, soccer jerseys for the boys (just home and away), Cross Country uniform (same for guys and gals), basketball jerseys for both the boys and girls (just a home and away), volleyball jersey (for the girls), lacrosse for girls and guys (just home and away), baseball (just home and away), Softball (both home and away), track (can be the same as CC), a football field design, and a basketball court.

The winner will be voted upon on the boards, and I will send the winners concept to the school board so it can be considered for the name of the school.

All entries are due on CC's boards by June 30th. You can post your progress on here if you like.

Good Luck!

Not until we resolve the issue as to why there are 4 "CC approved contests" going on while the guidelines state there are only to be 3, max.

Ah yes, but I also sent you a PM before you posted this thread suggesting you wait to start this contest as there are too many going on now.

When this competition begins, which may be immediately, are you accepting new logos only, or re-coloured versions of others as well?

It appears there are many High Schools who have a re-coloured logo from another team.

Also, what colours?

This is a re-coloured version of the Newcastle Knights Rugby League club.

I've also swapped the Knights helmet to face the other way.

If interested, I'll proceed to make uniforms, otherwise, no probs, I used it for my cousin's social basketball team which no longer plays.

i'd steer clear of the knights for a nickname if the school will be called northern guilford - northern durham high school (about 30-40 miles away) is also the knights - i highly doubt that a new high school would want to risk the confusion of two "Northern Knights" teams...but i could be wrong - raleigh/durham and greensboro/winston-salem are two different media outlets with different papers covering teams, etc.

is the name of this school finalized???...if not, that could make a huge difference in a mascot/nickname - it seems unusual to me that guilford county would have a northeast guilford hs, northwest guilford hs AND a northern guilford hs all in the same county

Is there any special thing that Northern Guilford is known for? Town celebrations, world's largest chicken, that sort of thing?

School name is finalized

no, we're not really known for anything a school board would welcome as a name... maybe a farming nickname..

you can do this all in paint... bball jersey for CC & track; hockey with the sleeves cut off for lax

you can do the logo however you want... but remember people will vote for the best design, and that will be the only one shown to the school board.
