IOA members are directors, deans, and vice-presidents of instructional areas, such as general academic, health science, and career technical programs. The purpose of the organization is to create, through collaboration, excellent learning environments for students in Alabama community colleges. The logo should be recognizable and help promote the organization’s mission, “to promote the development and advancement of the total educational program in the Alabama Community College System.” Please read below for more details regarding logo design, contest rules, and submission requirements.

The contest begins on December 3, 2019. Submissions will be accepted through February 7, 2020. Entries will be judged by past presidents of the association. Winners will be announced via our website and by direct contact to the winner’s email. In order for your entry to be submitted and reviewed by our judges, all entries must be:

• Color: There are no limitations, and any colors may be used. However, the logo must look good in color (if any) or black and white.
