CALLING ALL OF OUR CREATIVE AMWA MEMBERS TO ENTER A LOGO CONTEST

Starting Fall 2016, AMWA will be launching the Pre-Medicine Elefant Mentors Program (PMEMP). Participating chapters throughout the nation will be recruiting mentors to reach out to junior high school girls in underserved communities. Before we can launch the program, however, we will need a logo! If you are creative and would like to have your work represent PMEMP, please submit a drawing/illustration of a bold and empowered elephant. Themes of mentoring and medicine are encouraged, but not required. You can have more than one elephant in the logo. There is also no limitation on how many logos you submit. Please submit your logo(s) here

Please apply no later than May 21st, 2016 at 11:59pm EST. We will announce the winner on our next newsletter and via our social media outlets. We look forward to seeing what you come up with! Good luck!
