Announcing the Iowa Chapter Logo Contest!
Now that our members have identified their preference for Iowa’s state fish, we are happy to announce the Iowa Chapter Logo Contest!
Many units of AFS have recently updated their logos, including both the North Central Division (NCD) and the overall Society (see below). The purpose of updating is to stay relevant to current and potential members and reflect priorities of the membership. For example, the NCD logo encompasses symbolism for both the U.S. and Canada, as well as highlighting major species of management interest. The AFS logo includes symbolism in both shape and color, as explained here.
Please consider incorporating the following concepts into a new logo design for the Iowa Chapter:
- Iowa Darter
- Color scheme or elements of the American Fisheries Society logo
- Elements important to Iowa’s fisheries research, management, and education
Submissions will be accepted online here, and there is a prize for the winner! Non-members are welcome to submit, and there is no limit to the number of submissions per person.
