Do's and Don'ts
The National Blue Ribbon School logo is service marked by the U.S. Department of Education.
Schools can use the official logo to advertise their award in many ways, for example, in letterhead, newsletters, websites, banners, signage, clothing designs, etc.
Schools must use the logo with the official colors only or in black and white and grayscale, provided to accommodate non-color printing. The logo is available below in color, grayscale, black and white formats for your use.
Schools may not alter the logo design or content. For example, schools may not delete or change the year of the award or insert their school name into the body of the logo.
Schools, when publicizing their status, must include the year of their award, irrespective of logo use. For example, Apple Orchard Middle School, a
2012 National Blue Ribbon School is correct usage, because the year of the award is coupled with the National Blue Ribbon School status in the statement.
