AMTA-KY State Pin Contest

Are you creative and talented?

Hello Kentucky Members! This past summer, our state gave away the last of our AMTA-KY pins while we were at the National Conference. For those of you who have not been able to go to National, members from other states give out pins from their state and collect pins from other states. Over the years, there have been quite a few very clever designs to represent their state. For example, Wisconsin has done a wedge of cheese and California has used their state flower. This picture is an example of our latest pin.

Since we have run out and need to order more, now is our opportunity to change the shape and look of our pin! The AMTA-KY Board decided it would be an excellent opportunity for the creative minds of our Kentucky members to have an opportunity to weigh in on what our next pin should look like. Therefore, we are going to hold a contest! The winner will receive early-bird admission to our 2025 AMTA-KY Spring Conference! This is a value of at least $300! The winning design will be used on 1,000 pins that will be given out to members across the Nation. 

The rules are simple. Your design MUST have our AMTA-KY logo in it. The logo is attached in a JPG format. You are not allowed to alter the logo in any way. No use of profanity, drugs, or alcohol are permitted. All entries must be sent to by March 31st at 11:59pm. The designs will be voted via electronic ballot starting April 2nd- 14th. (One vote per member allowed.) The winning design will be sent to National for final approval. Should the winning design not be approved by National for any reason, the second most popular design will be submitted for review. The winner will be announced in the first newsletter after the 2024 AMTA-KY Spring Conference.

We look forward to seeing all of your excellent ways to show off our state to the rest of the country! If you have any questions, please email JoAnn Klein at and she will be happy to explain anything to you. Good luck!!!
