Design a fun, innovative logo for Special Scouts, a new non profit organization.
The primary mission of Special Scouts is to assist individuals with developmental disabilities by providing opportunities for participants of Special Scouts to experience camaraderie, build self-esteem and enduring friendships through participation in regular meetings and outings with a group of Special Scouts of similar age. Our mission statement is "Special Scouts: building camaraderie, self esteem and enduring friendships".
Special Scouts have a developmental disability or have a passion for working with other scouts with developmental disabilities. Special Scouts is a non-discriminatory corporation without restriction for gender, age, race, religion and developmental disability.
Special Scouts strives to strengthen the relationship between parent/caregiver and Special Scout through active participation with each other at meetings, outings and special events. Those meetings, outings and special events are focused on scouting activities that provide challenges and exploration leading to a participant's discovery of new possibilities. After all, exploration and discovery are the stimulus of the human spirit.
While Special Scouts is starting locally, the plan is to eventually expand to be a national organization, followed by an international organization. Therefore the logo must be general enough to be used in any location world wide.
The logo will be used extensively on letterheads, on clothing and on other branding items, therefore the logo must be simple yet communicate well the primary mission of Special Scouts uniquely as not to be confused with other existing logos.
We are looking for and judging entries on their clarity in representing the mission of Special Scouts. A clarity that spans nations and languages.
Both graphics and text are allowed, but remember that the text may be translated into different languages, therfore the graphic portion must be able to stand on its own.
There you have it. Now down to work. Good luck to all participants in generating a potential logo that encapsulates these ideas into a concise emblem.
