OK. If you take a look at
http://www.ugmidatlantic.com/, you'll quickly see that I'm no graphic designer, judging from the logo I created (I used Visio, since it was the only place I knew I could find templates for Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and DC). So what I'd like to do is enlist the community to see if we can come up with something better.
So here's the deal. If you're interested, create a logo or banner to go at the top of the ugmidatlantic.com site, and post it somewhere that I can download it, then drop me an email via the Contact form on my blog by the end of May. I'll post all of the entries I receive here, and we'll have them judged by a panel of experts...or a panel at least. The winner will receive either an MS Press book of their choice, or any XBOX game published by Microsoft, and will receive pride of place on the website.
