Roseman University Launches Mascot Design Contest

Since 1999 Roseman University of Health Sciences has been providing a top-notch education for students interested in healthcare, beginning with a College of Pharmacy and expanding to include a College of Nursing, College of Dental Medicine, a Master of Business Administration program, and a College of Medicine coming soon.

The institution has experienced exceptional growth over the years, and now Roseman University has announced that it is seeking submissions for a new mascot and mascot name. The mascot should be a symbol of the University, the communities in which we live, our geography and values, and will be a way to foster school spirit and pride.

Who Can Enter

The contest is open to any individual student, faculty member, staff member, alumni, or administrator at Roseman University. In order to be eligible for the contest you should be of sufficient legal age to enter into a contract with Roseman University for the use of your design, as outlined in the Mascot Contest Official Rules.

Contest Timeline

The contest begins today, and will continue through Friday, April 17, 2015. To be considered, all entries must be received by the Roseman University Marketing Office by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Friday, April 17, 2015. The winner(s) will be announced at the upcoming Founders Day currently planned for the spring.


The winner(s) of the competition will receive a cash prize:

  • $300 for the winner of the artwork/design contest
  • $100 for the winner of the name contest

Beyond the contest prize, no additional compensation will be provided for the continued use of the mascot design, artwork, or name, and the winner agrees that s/he will relinquish the rights to Roseman University for copyright, trademark, promotional use, and other uses as deemed necessary by the University.

Contest Rules

Each entrant is only allowed to submit one mascot design and one mascot name to the contest, so pick your best work. We will accept submissions in many different, forms, including pen, pencil, charcoal, watercolor, and graphic design, and you can send them to the marketing office via email. Designs should fit on an 8.5 x 11-inch standard size sheet of paper, and should be scalable to larger or smaller formats as well.

A full list of rules, submission guidelines, and additional information about the contest is available at roseman.edu/mascot. You can also find  Mascot Contest Official Rules online. If you have any questions, send an email to rosemanmascot@roseman.edu.

Mascot designs and names that you submit should not be shared publicly online or in any other format, as doing so will disqualify your submission. Once all the designs are collected a Mascot Committee will convene to review them and select a winner. The winning design and name will be submitted to the Administrative Council for final approval.
