Why is ANJEE changing its logo?

After 27 years, ANJEE has grown significantly as an organization.  We have become the voice of Environmental Education in the state of New Jersey through the alliances we have built over the years.  Although our original logo has a lot of significance in our history, we are looking to revitalize our look to better represent who we are and what we do as an organization.

This logo, used by ANJEE since 1985, was designed at that time by Natalie Schaeffer, a student at Kittatiny Regional High School.

This project was suggested to her by her former environmental science teacher Wayne DeFeo, one of ANJEE’s founding members.

Will prizes be awarded?

Yes.  The student whose submission gets chosen for our new logo will be awarded with a gift basket made up of donations from members of our alliance.  All submissions will be displayed on our website with the name of the student and their teacher and school.

What are the dimensions of the logo?

Again, we want to allow for a diverse range of entries so pixels and size are irrelevant.  However, you should try to keep non-digital entries to under 8.5” x 11”

When will the winning logo be announced?

We will announce ANJEE’s new logo on at the 2014 Annual Conference

What if I still have a question?

Just email us at and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Thanks so much for your interest and good luck!
