The Oklahoma Business Professionals of America has announced a pin design contest. Each year at the National Leadership Conference, each state has a pin for members of their association to trade with other members of other state associations. It is an excellent way to network within the organizations. So, the Oklahoma Executive Council needs the help of all the creative members to design the pin for trading at NLC in 2014.  The Pin Design Contest information is available for download by clicking here – FLC Pin Design 2013.  One thing that the Oklahoma BPA office would like to encourage is, to try and avoid the use of dates and years as a main subject in the design. Only use dates if it enhances the overall design, and if there is a year placed on the pin, be sure it is 2013-2014, or only 2014.  If you are interested in creating a pin design, please visit with me. The deadline for submission to me is Friday, September 13.  If more than two people submit pin designs, I will have a committee select the two winning designs.

Remember the deadline for applications for the Superintendent’s Leadership Class (SLC) is next Friday, September 6.  If you are interested be sure to get your materials and all your references submitted by that day.

As a graphic or web designer it is important to have an online portfolio of your work.  Keep this in mind throughout the year.  For a little inspiration, check out the portfolio of Bob Galmarini –   You can read a little about his design process in the “Art director harnesses CSS to create cool portfolio” article by Creative Bloq.

Want to know what kind of graphic and web design jobs are currently available in Oklahoma?  Check out the following links:

Note  the job requirements and duties for each position.

Be sure to submit your time sheets after clocking out today.  You will need to attach a printout of your assignments page of your website with a notation of which assignments you completed this week or write in the big box which assignments  (be specific) you completed this week.  No assignments listed… no work grade. If you took certification exams you may include those.  If you have questions, please ask.

Hot dogs will be provided for lunch today in the student break area at 11:00 am and 12:30 pm if you wish to participate.  Just no food in the classroom.

Don’t forget we do not have class on Monday due to Labor Day!
