Neighborhood Association Logo Contest

HAND is sponsoring a contest, challenging all neighborhood associations in Bloomington to design their own unique logo! 


Put your thinking caps on, get your creative juices flowing. Create a logo that represents your unique corner of the city. What is special about your 'hood? What distinguishes it from all others? What do you want others to know about it?

This is a great opportunity for you and your neighbors to think about why you love your neighborhood, and how you can best represent it in a logo. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Contest Rules:

  1. This is intended to be a fun activity, and need not be a professional job. Please do not spend money hiring a professional graphic designer.
  2. This is intended to be a (virtual) group activity. Try to involve as many of your neighbors as possible in the brainstorming process. You must work together to create ONE mutually agreeable logo for your neighborhood.
  3. Your logo should be 3" x 3" (aspect ratio of 1:1) and 300 dpi, saved as a pdf file. 
  4. Logos may be black and white OR full color. The choice is yours.
  5. Your email submission should include:
    • a pdf attachment with one mutually agreed upon logo per neighborhood; 
    • in the body of the email please include: 
      • neighborhood association name; 
      • contact person name, email, and phone number;
      • a brief statement about how and/or why your logo represents your neighborhood.

Please email your submission to by September 1, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.

The winning entry will be announced on National Good Neighbor Day, September 28, 2020. Click here for more National Good Neighbor Day Festivities
