NEW MADRID - New Madrid is conducting a contest to design a logo for the city's official stationery and city vehicles.
"The city of New Madrid's logo should be a thoughtful, unique symbol that somehow strikes a positive chord with all who view it," said John Gilbert, city administrator "The logo should be a simple design that best reflects the city of New Madrid."
Designs should not exceed four colors and should also have appeal in black and white, Gilbert said, who cautioned many logos are copyrighted and should not be copied by design contestants.
The first place winner will receive $100 while $75 will be awarded to second place, $50 to third place and $25 to fourth place.
The deadline for entry is Nov. 1. All entries should include the name and phone number of the designer on the back. Mail entries to City Hall, Post Office Box 96, New Madrid, MO 63869 or left at City Hall, 560 Mott St.
