Q300 Strong Design Competition – General Information

The Q300 PTA is excited to announce the launch of the Q300 Strong Design Competition. We’ve taken Principal Sonita’s unwavering motto, Q300 Strong, developed it into an arts enrichment project for the students and will generate some much-needed community-unifying school spirit.

This is how the Competition works:

  • Upper Division students will design a logo for a T-shirt.
  • Lower Division students will design a logo for a bookmark.
  • One winning design will be chosen from each Division and produced by Q300 & the PTA. The winners will receive a one-year Family Membership to the Museum of Modern Art. And every student in the school will receive a Q300 Strong T-shirt, bookmark and pencil.

Now we need your help to make the Q300 Strong Design Competition a success!

Find two Competition Info Sheets below. One for the Upper Division and one for the Lower Division. Please download the appropriate Info Sheet for your child/children.
