Blue Springs, Mo. –The Human Relations Commission is proud to announce a community contest for the design of a new logo to be used by the Commission.

The aim of the Blue Springs Human Relations Commission is to: foster the improvement of human relations among and between citizens of all cultural backgrounds, so as to provide all individuals with an equitable opportunity to grow and participate to the best of their ability in our economic, educational, political, and social systems.
