The NextGen Initiative Contest
The NextGen Initiative is gaining momentum across Canada – but we need your help! In addition to getting engaged and involved in your Local Union, we are looking for your expertise as digital designers, artists, drawers, doodlers and painters to come up with a logo to represent the NextGen Initiative.
We’ve already seen the IBEW Has Talent, with our First District champions singing their way to victory at the 38th International Convention – but can we draw? It’s up to you, Brothers and Sisters, to dazzle and delight with your creativity and come up with a logo that captures what the NextGen Initiative is all about: Re-energizing, Reinvigorating, and Recapturing our members to become actively involved in our IBEW. The NextGen logo design challenge is on!
