**We intend to choose a winning logo. However, we don't have the funds to potentially do another contest, so just in case, we won't be doing the "guaranteed" option. But to reiterate, we definitely intend on choosing a winning logo."**
We would like just a logo without any text! I've uploaded a bunch of example logos from other hackathons.
The logo is for PickHacks, a college student run hackathon. A hackathon is not what you initially think. It's actually an event where programmers/engineers come together in teams to create technological solutions to a specific theme prompt. Go to mlh.io for more information. The target audience is college students, as they are the ones attending the event, and companies, as they are the ones who sponsor and donate money.
For some context and inspiration, PickHacks is going to be a hackathon hosted by Missouri University of Science & Technology, where our mascot "Joe Miner" carries a pick axe.
