The Chamber recently asked North Platte R-1 art teacher, Terri Garms, if she had any students who would want to enter a Chamber Logo Contest. We had 12 entries!
The direction we gave our entrants stated that we would like for this new logo to more accurately represent our organization: Northern Platte County and the surrounding area. The only thing our members mentioned as far as preferences was that even though the majority of our members reside or own businesses in the North Platte School District, they do not want to use the school colors or mascot, as we do have members from the surrounding areas and we don’t want to openly exclude them. We have members in Platte City, Trimble, Smithville and Gower, as well as Camden Point, Edgerton, and Dearborn.
Each student submitted their drawing along with an explanation of their drawing.
Kaitlynn Tolbert (10th Grade) is our official contest winner, with her drawing of a red compass and a cornfield! “The compass shows we deal with the surrounding areas. It’s red so it’s eye catching, and shows its the most important. The corn is meant as a representation of the land in the area.” We liked her idea of the compass representing our Area, and talked about how agriculture ties our “area” together.
Amelia Britting (12th Grade) was our runner up, with her drawing of the State of Missouri, and our area located with a star.
This was a very difficult contest to judge, as there were so many good ideas sent to us!
We would like to say thank you to all our contest entrants, and congratulate you all on a job well done!
