HC Mascot Logo Design Contest

HC Mascot Logo Design Contest

We chose the TRAILBLAZER as the Huaer Collegiate school mascot because we want our scholars to be like trailblazers. Horses have a very high status in traditional Chinese culture, representing courage, integrity, diligence and strength. The trailblazer is known as a swift and strong horse. A trailblazer takes the lead. A trailblazer is a pioneer that creates new things that other people want to be part of. Signifying this unique spirit is an important way to build our school’s community culture. To promote the trailblazer spirit in HC scholars, we invite scholars from G3 to G10 to participate in the mascot logo design contest.

Winners are eligible for prizes and the chance to have their design selected as the Huaer Collegiate official mascot logo. The contest is also a great opportunity to boost your skills by having your work judged and critiqued by peers and faculty as well as professional designers. Entries are accepted now, so start your project!

Evaluation Criteria

The three criteria for judging the entries are whether they “keep with the theme of Trailblazer”, “The design’s level of completion” and have the “feasibility of commercialization as a logo”. We will also be hoping to see: the image could convey the meanings that focus on our school mission and motto:

Empowering extraordinary scholars to succeed anywhere.

The Mission of Huaer Collegiate is to build a future-oriented school, focused on empowering scholars to thrive in a rapidly changing economic and social environment. We will educate them to become competent for the work that is yet to be created, to apply the technology that is yet to be invented, and to solve the social problems that we cannot imagine today.

Motto: Dare to Seek and Soar Beyond

Contest entries will be displayed in iSTEAM-PBL showcases and critiqued by scholars, faculty and the general public. The winners will be selected by the Trailblazer Mascot Logo Design Committee incorporating but not limited by the summary results of the critique.
