OBS Logo Contest

TThe Oregon Bioengineering Symposium is looking for a new logo to represent the annual event. As the symposium is co-organized by Oregon Health Sciences University, Oregon State University, and University of Oregon, the selected logo should not be specific to any one institution but instead be reflective of the collaborative intention of the symposium. Submissions will be displayed and voted on by participants at the 5th annual event in Eugene, Oregon on November 3, 2023. The winning logo will be adopted by the committee for future symposium advertising and the designer will receive a $100 prize.
