Calling All Hands – Naval History and Heritage Command Logo Contest

Tuesday, June 25, 2013 2:05 PM

How would you literally put your stamp on naval history? Here’s your chance. We are looking to refresh the Naval History and Heritage Command logo – and we want YOU to help create the new one. The winning design will ultimately inspire the new command logo, and the winner will truly go down in history!

The Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) enjoys an illustrious history of preserving, analyzing, and disseminating the history and heritage of the U.S. Navy. This organization roots itself as far back as 1800 when President John Adams instructed the first Secretary of the Navy, Benjamin Stoddard, to prepare a catalog of professional books for use in the Secretary’s office. Over the next two centuries, the Navy’s history was collected through various offices and departments. Finally, in the early 1970’s, the organization ultimately entitled the Naval History and Heritage Command became the single entity responsible for all aspects of Navy historical preservation and dissemination.

We invite everyone – from the oldest salts to the youngest wannabe Sailors to family members to the general public – to submit designs to help inspire and develop a new logo that promotes our mission and heritage, and helps chart our course forward with lessons from the past.

The contest runs from now until Labor Day (September 2, 2013), when submissions will then be judged and a winner determined and announced here. Designs should consider elements of the NHHC mission, including to…

Collect, preserve, protect and make available the artifacts, documents, and art that best embody our naval history and heritage for present and future generations.

Advance the knowledge of naval history and heritage through professional research, analysis, interpretation, products and services.

Remind America of its reliance on a strong Navy and Marine Corps in protecting its citizens, freedoms and security interests.

So what do you have to lose? Send us your designs and become a part of our history!
