Patch Design Contest

Laurel Highlands Council

Council Shoulder Patch Contest

The top five designs will be selected on May 12, 2011 and we will work with our vendor to create the final artwork. From May 16 to May 21, 2011 the top five designs will be posted online and every member of the Laurel Highlands Council will have the opportunity to place their vote to select the official Laurel Highlands Council Shoulder Patch.

The Laurel Highlands Council will produce 500 numbered sets of the top five designs that will be available for purchase at the annual meeting on June 9, 2011 at Camp Twin Echo. Any remaining sets will be available through the council website after the meeting. This will be the only production of the 4 runner up patches. Proceeds from this patch sale will offset the costs of the Council Camporee to be held at Heritage Reservation.

Further, the first 250 Scouters to register and attend the Council Annual Meeting on June 9, 2011 at Camp Twin Echo will receive one of the first 250 numbered Council Shoulder Patches.
