The Annapolis Office of Community Services is inviting students from Annapolis schools to design our logo!


From September 15, 2022 to December 15, 2022 we will accept applications from students in the 4th grade and beyond to present what they would like their Office of Community Services Logo to be. Winners will be announced by March 2023.  

To enter, students must complete the application between the dates of September 15 to December 15 in order to allow enough time for schools to enfold this project into their curriculum. This application can be found by clicking on the following link: https://arcg.is/804q9

After the application deadline, public voting will be encouraged from January 17, 2023, to February 17, 2023. Voters will pick their three top choices, and the three with the most votes will then become finalists. The finalists will then move on to our last stage, in which the OCS staff, City Aldermen, Alderwomen, and the Mayor of Annapolis will vote on the final winner. 

The announcement of selected logo for the Office of Community Services will be announced on our website on March 15th, 2023.
