Logo Design Contest Overview

The Hmong Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce (HWCC) is rebranding and is inviting the public to participate! Over the last 13+ years, HWCC has helped numerous individuals/families from disadvantaged neighborhoods, start and expand their business in Wisconsin.

In order to continue our mission and to expand, we are changing our name "The Hmong Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce" to just "HWCC".

Why the switch?

We want to be more inclusive and lower barriers in giving aid to the many diverse minority ethnicities that we serve. There has been a misconception that our chamber due to its name, only services Hmong ethnicity individuals. While HWCC does primarily serve individuals of Hmong and Asian descent, HWCC has and is currently servicing many individuals/businesses from various ethnicities that come from disadvantaged neighborhoods in Wisconsin.

Logo Design Contest

 The logo design contest was created to have talented individuals from the Asian community help our chamber come up with a new logo. However, we welcome designers regardless of location and ethnicity to participate as well! 


We hope to have your continued support during our rebranding phase.
