Debian Jr. is a Custom Debian Distribution (CDD) project.
Their goal is to make Debian an OS that children of all ages will want to use. Their initial focus will be on producing something for children up to age 8. Once they have accomplished this, their next target age range is 7 to 12. By the time children reach their teens, they should be comfortable with using Debian without any special modifications.

The Debian Jr. needs a logo and all designers are welcome!

The main logo symbol for the Debian Jr., which will be used for the web site, desktop themes, software media labels, printed matter, hardware equipment and so on.

* The logo must be identifiable directly to the Project.
* The logo must be original work of the submitter.
* The logo should be vector graphics, not a bitmap image.
* The logo should be usable in monochrome and color media,
including limited colors (say 2 or 3 colors).
* The logo must not exploit or offend anyone's sex, race, religion, morality, culture, nor be salacious or pornographic.
* The logo should convey attributes of the Debian Jr. project.
* Please keep in mind the broad age ranges reached by this project, so images that will only appeal to a very narrow range of ages are not as desirable as those with broader appeal.
