175th Logo Design Contest Entry Form


As a company whose roots grow deep in Aroostook County soil, we know the value of hard work and determination. We do not take these attributes for granted and we proudly support many local events and organizations that make up the wonderful place we call home. There’s something special about the people who live here and as we approach our 175th year in business, we want to involve the hard-working people who patronize our stores and include them and their ideas in the creation of this celebratory logo. The next year will be filled with many momentous occasions that will support and showcase our communities which we are looking forward to sharing with you in the coming months.

We have a professional graphic designer on our staff that could easily create our 175th logo at no cost to us. By opening this up in the form of a contest, we are inviting people to express their creative ideas and give them an opportunity to share their talents. The $175 prize is representative of our 175th anniversary. The winner will receive much more than a monetary prize. Recognition, exposure and encouragement to someone that might possibly be inspired to continue down their creative path. All entries will be recognized and applauded.

If anyone would like to further discuss the intent of our contest, please contact our Marketing Manager and she will address any concerns that you may have.
