For another year, we’re teaming with the Observer newspaper to enable people to help select the logo for the 18th annual Laurel Run.

Each year, we hold a contest among area high school students to design the Laurel Run logo.  Many designs were submitted in this year’s contest.  Internal voting at The Resource Center and Filling the Gap, Inc., identified ten finalists, which consist of designs created by students at Chautauqua Lake, Frewsburg, Hewes BOCES, Panama, Sherman, and Silver Creek.

You can vote until 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 13.  Please vote just once.  For more information, to see the designs and to cast your vote, visit http://extras.observertoday.com/LaurelRun/Laurel.asp.  The winning design will appear on this year’s Laurel Run T-shirts and other promotional materials.  The winning artist will receive a $100 gift card.

This year’s Laurel Run takes place July 18-19.  The event was created by Wayne and Elaine Hotelling of Silver Creek in honor of their oldest daughter, who has Down syndrome.  Money raised through Laurel Run goes to Filling the Gap, Inc., and is used in two ways: to support disability awareness and prevention activities, and to enhance employment and work training opportunities for adults with disabilities, like Laurel.
