l, I II PAGE 2-A HOG, SVmLE HERALD - THURSDAY, AUG. 23, 2012 ? The Troup Harris Regional Library is launching a New Logo Contest! The contest is open to any active student in a Troup or Harris County High School, or recognized home school pro- gram for grades 9 -12. Any student wishing to participate must abide by the rules - these are posted on our website at www.thrl.org. We are looking for a new logo that will incorporate our mission, vision, and values. Our logo needs to represent not only our area, but who we serve and what we do. It should be clean, easily dis- cernible, and digitally rendered. Please be aware of any copy- write infringements or previously used logos. Since we need to represent two counties, a broad spectrum approach would be optimal. The winner will receive a $500 Scholarship cIa ck cour- tesy of the LaGrange Friends of the Library. -. -- THE winning student will be credited with creating the new logo. This will be great for their college portfolio! The winner will also be posted on our website, social networks, and may be interviewed in the local media. We look forward to the many submissions we will receive. Thank you for taking the time to support the Troup-Harris Regional Library System. All entries must be submitted electronically by 31 October 2012 to logocontest@thrl.org and will become the property of the Troup-Harris Regional Library. A FINAL decision should be made by the end of the year, : with the scholarship awarded right after the Christmas break. :.: The top 10 choices will be submitted to the LaGrange Friends of the Library to be narrowed down to the top three. :.i The Regional Board of Trustees will choose the winner :: from the top three.
