Michigan State Theme & NLC Trading Pin Graphic Contests

One of the early ways to start your participation in BPA each year is to participate in our two graphic contests. Students are encouraged to demonstrate their artistic abilities by participating in our Michigan State Theme Graphic Contest and Michigan NLC Trading Pin Contest. Students may participate in either one or both of these contests.

The Michigan State Theme Graphic Contest will produce the design that will be used for our state conference plaques, awards, and program booklet cover.

The Michigan NLC Trading Pin Contest is for Michigan BPA to try to select a design that will be turned into a keepsake trading pin for our 2017 national conference.

Samples of an assortment of previous winners are displayed in the photo galleries below.

Demonstrate your talents and creativity by participating in these contests. Contest guidelines are available by clicking the appropriate links below.
