Rattlers and Noles! We want to have our own FAMU-FSU Engineering Mascot and we need your help!

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering needs your help designing a new mascot! How would you like to use those design skills you have and to make history at the college? We want to invite you to design a mascot to represent the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering.

After years of sharing the mascots of each college, engineering students will have a chance to choose a new mascot to represent the FAMU-FSU Engineering College. The mascot will serve as a symbol of the diversity, geography, and values of the college and foster school spirit and pride for our unique community.

This is a contest open to all current students at the college.

Contest timeline

The contest begins today and will continue through Friday, February 5, 2021. To be considered, all entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on Friday, February 5, 2021. The winner(s) will be announced on Friday, February 26, 2021, at the end of Engineers Week.

Who can enter:

The contest is open to current undergraduate and graduate students at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. To be eligible, you should be of sufficient legal age to enter into a contract with FAMU-FSU College of Engineering for the use of your design, as outlined in the Mascot Contest Official Rules.


The winner of the competition will receive the following prizes:

  • $300 Amazon gift card 
  • Student spotlight story published on the College of Engineering website
  • College of Engineering Instagram story takeover & social media promotion

Beyond the contest prizes, no additional compensation will be provided for the continued use of the mascot design, artwork, or name, and the winner agrees to relinquish the rights to FAMU-FSU College of Engineering for copyright, trademark, promotional use, and other uses as deemed necessary by the college.

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. 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.

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.
