Student members may submit designs for a lapel pin by the submit date: October 31st, 2018. Pins will be 1” in diameter and may be designed in various shapes. The designs may have a maximum of 5 solid colors but may include glitter or metallic colors. Dangling features may be included but must include a 1/2" chain. No gradients will be allowed unless specified on the form that it is to represent a metallic color. Photos are not permitted in the design.

Students may submit more than one design. Designs will be reviewed by the design committee and an email will be sent to confirm receipt of entry. Any design submitted after submit date (October 31st, 2018) will be rejected. Any design unable to be produced by the pin company will be sent back to the student/adviser with design modifications required. Any resubmitted design(s) must adhere to the original submit date (October 31st, 2018.)


All pin designs will be displayed at the 2018 Fall Leadership Development Conference using the “Design Submission Information” section of the entry form. Student members registered at the 2018 Fall Leadership Development Conference will vote during the closing general session.
