Portland Calls Upon Young Artists to Design

Skatepark Logo for Fundraising Effort

PORTLAND, Maine - Today, the City kicked-off its Skatepark Momentum contest. Portland students (elementary through college) are invited to design a logo for the new Skatepark's tagline Momentum. The winning logo will be used as a tool to help the committee meet its fundraising goal of $325,000 to build a new Skatepark at the Dougherty Field Complex. To date, the City has allocated $75,000 in capital funds and a $75,000 in-kind land donation. The remaining funds will be raised through public donations.

"This contest is a great way to kick-off our fundraising efforts," stated Sally DeLuca, the City's Recreation Director. "Our tagline, Momentum, captures both the enthusiasm of Portland's skateboarders/bikers for the new skatepark and the committee's commitment to working together to meet our goal."

Contest participants are allowed to use any medium (computer graphics, sketches, painting, etc.) to design the logo. The logo should embody the word momentum and skateboarding/biking. All submissions must be received by March 24, 2008 at 4:30 PM. A winning design will be selected Wednesday, March 26th at 5:30 PM. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to a local skateboarding shop.

Logo designs can by dropped off or mailed to Portland Parks and Recreation, 134 Congress Street, Suite 2, Portland Maine 04010, attention Sally Deluca or an electronic version of the logo can be emailed to
