Sparwood is asking residents to submit logos for the district’s 50th anniversary celebration next year.

The guidelines for logo submissions are fairly open, with participants being asked to simply come up with something unique that captures all the good things about Sparwood and includes the wording “Sparwood” in the tagline.

“We really want to get as many people from the community involved in this as possible,” Sparwood Business Development Liaison Jude Smith said. “This isn’t something to replace the existing logo or branding. It is something that will be used specifically to promote things to do with the 50th anniversary.”

The logos will be on display at the District of Sparwood website, and the winning participant can choose from two prizes, including a 50th anniversary Sparwood swag basket or a private pool party for you and 50 friends.

The contest is open until May 4 and all entries can be submitted by paper or emailed to recoffice@sparwood.ca

Sparwood will be turning 50 in May 2016.

“The idea was to get this competition underway a year in advance,” Smith said.
