The entries are in and the debate is on.
A logo contest for the Escalon Unified School District saw several entries come in and District Superintendent Ron Costa said the school board has had a chance to begin the review process.
“They’re really excited about their options,” Costa said of board members.
The goal of the contest, he added, is to refresh the district logo, giving it more of a 21st century feel and look. That could be with more color, different graphics or a total re-design.
“We presented the different logo options to the board,” Cost said of the reveal at the board meeting earlier this month. “Their options are they can pick one as they are, they can pick one with some alterations or we can stay with the logo we have.”
Costa said the board did like a couple of the entries but would still like to see a few changes, such as different fonts or other colors.
All the logos submitted were taken to the board for consideration and Costa said they came not only from students but from the community in general, which was something they were hoping for when they first announced the contest.
He said the board also could choose to use portions of different logos, such as the wording on one paired with the picture from another.
“They did give us direction, we will bring a couple of them back,” he said.
The goal is to have the final options ready for board review and possible approval at the Tuesday, March 5 meeting.
