Logo Design Competition

Competition Description – All Divisions

This year, we have created a new competition to design an SECME Logo. This competition will take place virtually at the national level and is inclusive of all SECME students, regardless of their district’s affiliation with SECME or their preference for conducting it regionally.

The logo design must correspond to this year’s theme: “Space is the Place.”

This competition includes a logo design and a short written description.


To our SECME regional hosts and university partners:
Hosting this competition in your region is at your discretion. Should you opt to proceed, you can impose the exact requirements for your region’s competition that we have for the national level.
