Design the Tutor Badge 2016 – win a softie ice cream machine!


How to spot a tutor among the freshman hordes of autumn? By their badge, of course! Every year, HYY provides the tutors of the University of Helsinki with the legendary tutor badges or “tutor buttons”. If you are lucky, it might have a picture designed by YOU on it!

The Committee for Freshman Activities hereby announces a competition for designing the new tutor badge.

The competition is open to all HYY’s members and organisations. Your task is to design a badge with a diameter of 56 mm that features (at least) the words “Tuutori”, “Tutor” and “2016” and thus clearly indicates that the person wearing it is a tutor in 2016. The badge should be circular.

Send your entry as a PDF file to by Wednesday 1 May at 11.59 pm. The Committee for Freshman Activities will choose the winner and announce them at HYY’s hangout evening for tutors on 9 May. The winner will receive a soft serve machine worth 50 euros. HYY reserves the right to edit the winning picture if needed to make it graphically and communicatively more appropriate.
