Laurel Run logo contest under way
Area high school students can put their artistic talents to use by participating in the 2015 Laurel Run logo contest. The person who designs the winning entry will receive a $100 gift card to a store of his or her choosing.
The Laurel Run logo contest is open to high school students in Chautauqua County. Design entries should not be too intricate, as the winning design must reproduce well on a T-shirt. Artists can use as many colors as they want in their design but should keep in mind that the design used on the shirts probably will feature only one or two colors. Artists also are encouraged to submit original designs, rather than using artwork they find on the Internet or through other sources.
Designs must be received by Monday, April 27. Internal voting at The Resource Center and Filling the Gap will identify the finalists. Again this year, the Observer will allow the public to vote for the winner through the newspaper’s web site.
The person creating the winning design will receive a $100 gift card and a T-shirt featuring the winning design.
Designs should be submitted to: Laurel Run Logo Contest, c/o Filling the Gap, 92 Fairmount Avenue, Jamestown, NY, 14701. Designs also may be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. All entries become the property of Filling the Gap.
The 19th annual Laurel Run will take place July 17-18. The traditional Jamestown-to-Dunkirk relay run will take place Friday, July 17. The following morning, the action shifts to Silver Creek and features an 8-kilometer running race, a 5k walk, a 1k fun walk, children’s runs, “Laurel’s Lap” (for anyone with a disability), and a post-race party.
