After setting up a contest for high school students, the committee chose a logo designed by Abby Racoma of Saipan Southern High School.
According to SYP chair Mable Ayuyu, the logo was chosen by most members because they felt it best represented what they stand for such as leadership and professionalism.
“The logo was a strong, yet simple representation of a young professional in the Marianas. The design works cohesively with the Saipan Chamber of Commerce logo,” Ayuyu said.
A total of seven entries were received by the committee after the school-level selections. Members of the committee cast votes on the top five and the logos were ranked according to the number of votes.
The logos were judged according to the level of creativity, whether the logo represented young leadership in the CNMI and professionalism, whether the design would cohesively match the current Saipan Chamber of Commerce logo, and whether they felt that the logo represented the committee.
In second place is Annika Matias of Saipan Southern High School, third is Enrico Del Rosario of Mount Carmel School, while Verijean Mangubat of Marianas High School and Fritz Gerald Trinidad of Marianas Baptist Academy placed fourth and fifth place.
Winners received $300, $200, and $100 along with gift packages.
