STP 1st Annual Design Contest
We have an exciting announcement to make: the STP Design Contest for the 2023-2024 academic year is now open, and we want YOU to participate! This is your chance to unleash your creative genius, make a lasting impact on STP, and win a free registration to STP’s Annual Conference on Teaching in October.
Are you ready to showcase your artistic talent and create a design that embodies the core values and mission of STP? We're seeking a colorful design that captures the very essence of our society—a design that is visually stunning, memorable and speaks to who we are as teachers and psychologists. Be sure to incorporate "STP" and the academic year "2023-2024" into your design. Picture your creation being transformed into stickers that will be showcased and shared as part of our conference swag throughout the academic year!
Participation in this contest is open to all current members of STP. If you're not yet a member, don't worry! Becoming a member is inexpensive, quick, and easy—simply visit our website and join the STP community. https://teachpsych.org/join/. Non-members will have the opportunity to provide input by voting for their favorite design, but only members are eligible to contribute a submission.
Submitting your design is a breeze! Just go to: https://teachpsych.org/submitdesign (requires login) and complete a quick Google Form indicating your intention to submit. Once your design is ready, email a JPEG or AI (adobe illustrator) file to the email address included on the Google form. We can't wait to see your imaginative and unique vision come to life.
Designs are due by September 1st. Once the submission period ends, designs will be reviewed by the STP Design Contest Committee for originality and appropriateness. This committee will consist of STP’s Vice-President of Membership, two members from the Membership Committee, and two members from the Membership Communications Committee. After the initial review, we will move into the public feedback phase. Anyone interested in the teaching of psychology (i.e., STP members and non-members) will have the opportunity to review the designs and provide input to help determine the top designs. This is your chance to make your voice heard and support the designs that you believe best represent STP. Following the group voting, the STP Design Contest Committee will carefully review the top 3-5 designs and make the final decision based on originality, visual appeal, and the embodiment of STP’s values.
The grand unveiling of the winning design will take place at the STP Annual Conference on Teaching in October. In addition to earning free registration to the conference*, we will recognize your contribution and present you with a certificate. Furthermore, your design will proudly serve as the official STP sticker for the entire 2023-2024 academic year and be available at all STP-sponsored conferences.
Remember, originality is the key to success! Ensure that your design is not copyrighted and truly reflects your creative vision. Don't let this remarkable opportunity slip away. Let your design gears turn, gather inspiration, and prepare to submit your masterpiece. We are eagerly awaiting your innovative designs and can't wait to celebrate your talent!
*The winner may choose to gift their free registration to a colleague, request a refund if they have already registered for ACT 2023, or delay their registration to ACT 2024 if they were not planning to attend ACT this year.
