Fair contest still needs a logo

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — The invitation is still open for Garvin County’s 4-H and FFA students to pull out their artistic talents as a way of helping an annual fair event.

With a deadline looming next month, hopes are for students ages 9 to 19 to try and come up with their own unique design for a logo to represent the Garvin County Free Fair and Horse Show coming later this year.

Topping it off is the project involves more than just pride as a cash prize is waiting for the logo winner.

Tracie Mullendore, who serves as the county’s 4-H program assistant, says the thinking here is to start bringing in new and fresh ideas on improving the fair event held each fall.

“We’re trying to revamp and rejuvenate our Free Fair,” Mullendore said.

Put another way this project is one part of a larger effort to make a traditional fair event even more family friendly.

“We’re trying different and new things for the fair,” she said. “We want to reinvigorate it and offer even more at the fall show.

“We want to increase awareness of these programs available for students and the public.”

The idea for this logo contest, something brand new for the fair, came from Randy McGee, a member of the Garvin County Fair Board.

A cash prize of $300, sponsored by Pauls Valley National Bank, will be given to the student whose logo is chosen to represent this year’s fair.

One guideline for the contest is students enrolled in 4-H or FFA may submit up to two hand-drawn logos, along with an official entry form.

The logo must contain the words “Garvin County Free Fair and Horse Show.”

Scanned hand-drawn logo submissions are acceptable, while entries which fail to conform to the guidelines will be rejected.

All logo submissions will be screened by a panel of judges for basic suitability and adherence to the contest rules.

Entries must be submitted, along with the entry form, no later than 4:30 p.m. June 10 by mail or delivered in person to the Garvin County Cooperative Extension Service located on the first floor of the Garvin County Courthouse in Pauls Valley.

Entry forms may be obtained at the Extension office or downloaded at www.oces.okstate.edu/garvin online.

Entries may also be scanned and emailed to Mullendore at tracie.m.mullendore@okstate.edu.

Judging for the contest is scheduled to take place June 12.

The logo will be featured on the cover of the Garvin County Free Fair guide as well as any other promotional items pertaining to the fair and horse show.
