Wrigley, Committee Members Extend Deadline for Logo Design Ideas for North Dakota's 125th Celebration
BISMARCK, N.D. – Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley and members of the North Dakota 125th Anniversary Committee are extending the deadline for North Dakotans to submit their design ideas for the official logo for the state’s 125th anniversary celebration to be held next year. November 2, 2014, marks the 125th anniversary of North Dakota’s statehood.
A number of design ideas have already been submitted, but the committee would like to allow additional time for more North Dakotans to submit their ideas. The deadline has been extended to Tuesday, September 3. A $500 cash award from the North Dakota Council on the Arts will be given to the artist of the logo or logos selected.
The contest is open to all North Dakotans, amateurs and professionals alike, and the winning logo will be used on promotional materials and merchandise developed for the year-long quasquicentennial celebration. Logo designs should feature images representative of North Dakota’s rich history and heritage, as well as opportunities for the future.
To be eligible to win, contestants must submit their original design to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, September 3, with the subject line “Logo Contest.” Multiple entries are allowed, but must be submitted individually. All entries must be submitted in their finished form and meet all submission guidelines, which can be found on the State Historical Society of North Dakota’s website at www.history.nd.gov. Questions regarding the contest can be directed to Janean Rambough at 701.328.1430.
The North Dakota 125th Anniversary Committee, chaired by Wrigley, is working with agencies, organizations and communities across the state to coordinate events and activities to commemorate the state’s milestone anniversary. More information will be provided regarding the celebrations as plans are confirmed.
