In order to encourage community involvement, and because we found so much creativity among members of the community when we had our contest to design the stained glass windows for Casey’s Cottage, we decided to hold a contest to design the logo for the Friends of Mexico Point Park. The Friends would like a logo that is simple, elegant, distinctive, conveys the beauty of the park, and expresses the creative energy that its volunteers bring to the park for the community.
The contest is open to all, and The Friends are offering a $250 cash prize for the person who creates the winning design. The Friends of Mexico Point Park Board will judge the contest entries and will select the winner, provided that there is an entry that meets the standards and tastes of the Friends of Mexico Point Park Board. If no entry meets the Board’s standards, additional rounds of contest entries may be conducted until a winning design is chosen.
Mexico Point Park is located on the southern shore of Lake Ontario in Mexico, NY, at 120 Mexico Point Drive, on the western shore of the Little Salmon River (not the boat launch, which is on the eastern shore of the Little Salmon River). The park is open between sunup and sundown, and like all NY State Parks, is a carry in/carry out park. It is the only state park in New York that is free for all to enter. The history of the park along with photographs and stories can be found at the park website, https://mexicopointpark.com and at the park’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100083899004856&mibextid=ZbWKwL
The logo contest entry deadline is April 1, 2023 at 11:59 pm. Entries may be mailed along with the name of the designer and contact information (address, email address, phone number) to Friends of Mexico Point Park; 818 County Route 16; Mexico, NY 13114, or email your entry as a TIFF, PNG, GIF, JPEG or PDF file emailed to [email protected] All email entries received by the deadline and all mailed entries postmarked on or before April 1, 2023, will be submitted into the contest. None of the designs entered will be returned. The Friends of Mexico Point Park Board will take legal ownership of only the winning design and may decide to modify it before establishing it as their official logo.
