Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance wants you to help us choose our mascot! Which image do you think best captures our neighborhood's proud, hard-working history and quirky yet playful nature?


This contest is open to artists who live and/or work in Summit County and the surrounding counties of Cuyahoga, Geauga, Medina, Portage, Stark, and Wayne. Artists who live, work, or otherwise have a connection to the Kenmore neighborhood are also encouraged to apply.


  • Participants should upload both a front-facing and side-facing view of their cardinal mascot design in JPEG/PNG/TIFF or EPS/PDF format (vector art preferred). Pictures/photos of any caricatures or hand-drawn concepts can be uploaded using the same process.

  • Entries that make the shortlist for final evaluation and consideration will be required to submit the design in an editable and open file format, such as Adobe Illustrator. Please contact if you need help meeting this requirement.

  • Participants should not imprint, watermark, or include any personal identifiers such as name or any other details on the uploaded design entries.

  • Please include a brief rationale with your submission explaining your design and why you think it is a good fit to serve as a mascot and representative for the Kenmore community. You will be asked for a brief bio as well.

  • File size should not exceed 1 MB or a maximum 4 images. Please be sure to include both a front-facing and side facing version of your design. Larger files may be requested at a later date.

  • The artist who creates the winning entry will surrender ownership of the design to Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance to use in perpetuity.
