Creative high school students have a chance to become a part of Burlington County history.
The county kicked off a new logo contest this week, and is seeking submissions from high school students. Students are asked to submit original designs for a new logo that will build upon the county’s new tagline: “South Jersey Starts Here.”
The current logo, pictured here, depicts a covered wagon crossing a bridge.
“Our county seal is a part of our history and will stay a part of the county, but we are looking for a logo that represents what is happening in the county now and also take us into the future,” said Freeholder Director Joe Donnelly.
The logos will be judged for originality, creativity, relevance to the county and connection with the tagline. A grand prize of $250 will go to the chosen logo and nine additional $25 prizes will go to finalists.
“Burlington County enjoys a rich history, a bustling business community, a thriving farming community, and a huge array of parks, forests and other environmental resources,” said Donnelly. “The new logo needs to capture these many assets.”
Logo finalists will be displayed on the county website. All submissions must be at least 1 MB in size and sent electronically by emailing Donnelly at firstname.lastname@example.org. They must be received by 4 p.m. March 29. Submissions must include the student’s name, school and grade, as well as contact information.
The county is hoping to get sponsors to help with the prizes. Anyone interested should contact Donnelly at the Burlington County Freeholder’s Office at 609-265-5020.
