State invites logo designs
22 July 2013

The logo for North Dakota's 100th anniversary in 1989 was designed by Burt Calkins.

BISMARCK (UTN) - The State of North Dakota is in the market for some artwork. It's a competition to design a logo for the state's 125th birthday. But, you better hurry. North Dakota artists have only until August 12 to whip-up a design.

      A state committee gave artists one month to enter a contest to create a logo that depicts the state's "storied history and bright future." Amateurs and professionals can submit. The winning design gets wide recognition on promotional materials and merchandise.

      North Dakota's most recent experience with anniversary logo-making goes back 25 years to the State Centennial in 1989. Two official logos were produced, one with the pioneer theme and the other Native American.

Artist Wallace "Butch" Thunderhawk Jr. (Lakota/Dakota) of United Tribes designed this official Native logo for the 1989 State Centennial.

      To have a design considered, artists must submit their original artwork to jmrambough@nd.gov by the August 12 deadline, with the subject line "Logo Contest."

      Guidelines can be found on the State Historical Society of North Dakota website www.history.nd.gov. More info: Janean Rambough 701.328.1430. jmrambough@nd.gov.

      The state's 125th anniversary is next year on November 2, 2014.
