“Putnam Moves” To Get A Rebranding, New Logo
As our county reinvents itself for a new, robust economic future, the new public transportation system called “Putnam Moves” is about to get a major redesign. Four key tenets of the new system, namely community, commerce, nature and recreation, will be the focus of a logo design contest open to students from grades K-12 who reside in Putnam County. Major efficiency updates to the county’s public transportation system include revamped routes which are expected to be announced in the spring of 2014. The deadline for contest entries is March 5th. The student submitting the winning design will receive a $500 scholarship.
“I believe that there is no better marketing team out there to promote our county transportation system. I was thrilled to have the Putnam Chambers agree to partner with the Transportation Advisory Council and county government,” said Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell. “To have their support and expertise in marketing not only our transit system, but our Main Street economy continues to be a major focus of the administration. We are in good hands.”
Students should enter the contest via the “Putnam Moves” Contest tab on the Putnam County Chambers of Commerce Facebook Fan Page (http://a.pgtb.me/8VNz8f) or via the chamber’s website, www.putnamchamberny.org. Artwork should be presented in a JPEG, GIF or PNG file. The winning entry will be selected by the Putnam County Transportation Advisory Council with the final approval of the County Executive. Winners will be notified via email; children under 18 must have their entries approved and submitted by a parent. The winner will be announced by County Executive, MaryEllen Odell at the State of the County address on March 13th.
All submitted logo designs will be on display at the Putnam County Golf Club on March 21st as part of the inaugural meeting of the Putnam Women’s Leadership Alliance.
