United for Youth Logo Competition

The United for Youth Network Logo Competition has officially ended. We would like to thank Network partners for helping to co-create this experience, and most importantly the students for submitting their incredible artwork and concepts. Keep an eye out for announcements on the winners of the competition and the next steps they'll take in creating the final logo for the United for Youth Network. 

The United for Youth Network Needs a Logo

We believe this logo and this Network should be co-created by the very people our collective work is about - our students! United for Youth Network's goal is that by 2035, all Asheville and Buncombe County students will graduate fully prepared to pursue their goals and dreams. We envision ALL children and youth learning, growing, and thriving in a vibrant, healthy, and connected community.
