Entries must be submitted to Mr. Spinner or Mr. Betz as an email attachment, or turned into the reception desk at the Olentangy Administrative Offices, 7840 Graphics Way.

Each entry that meets the qualifying guidelines will be reviewed WITHOUT NAME by a committee of students, staff and community members. This review committee will select 10 entries and post them at each high school and middle school for all students to review no later than Monday, October 31, 2017. Those students who will attend Olentangy Berlin High School will vote on an official logo on a designated day the week of November 5 during all lunch periods at each of the high schools and during 8th grade lunch period at the middle schools. In the event of a tie, a second vote to include only the tied entries will be held during the week of November 13.
