The Anacortes School District plans to work with students and staff to select one AHS Seahawks logo in the next few weeks -- to be used with the opening of the new high school in 2018.

At present, there are several logos used to represent the Seahawks. The process will include a review of existing and newly designed logos in selecting a standard to be used across the school.

Anacortes students and residents are welcome to submit their entries. Information about the contest is available on the school district's Web site. Click for more. The deadline for submissions is 5:00 pm (PST) on Friday, March 18, 2016.

Entries will be reviewed by selected AHS students and district staff. The top logos will be included in a survey to be distributed to all students, staff and parents to vote on their favorite entry. After a week, the logo with the highest number of votes will be announced as the winner.

The winner of the contest will receive recognition from the Anacortes School District Board of Directors and publicity in the Anacortes Pride newsletter. The winner will also have artistic credit for his/her logo and receive a small prize.

The district is committed to being cost-effective in its approach to incorporating the new logo. All current materials with existing logos will be used up before ordering replacements with the new logo.

With a scheduled opening of the new high school in September 2018, selection of a new logo this spring will allow the high school design team to incorporate it into plans for the new school.
