Notice of public planning meeting and logo contest entries being accepted

CLAYTON, NY – The Village of Clayton will be hosting its second public planning meeting for the upcoming 150th Anniversary Celebration. The meeting will take place on Monday, June 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the Clayton Fire Department located at 855 Graves Street, Clayton.

Individuals and organizations wishing to contribute or volunteer in next year’s festivities are welcome to attend.

In addition, entries continue to be accepted for the Village of Clayton 150th Anniversary Logo Design Contest.

All artwork must be original creations of the entrant, and the final artwork no larger than 8.5” x 11” (horizontally or vertically).

By entering the contest, the artist will agree to allow necessary changes (not affecting the integrity of the design) that may be necessary to ensure the best presentation of the logo. Designs must incorporate the tag line “150 Years – Where the Tradition Continues” and the dates 1872-2022. Artists are encouraged to focus on the history of the Village of Clayton specifically, not the Thousand Islands Region as a whole. All entries will become the property of the Village of Clayton and by submitting an entry, each entrant agrees that any and all intellectual property rights in the logo design are deemed assigned to the Village of Clayton.

The deadline for logo submissions is Friday, July 16, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. A panel of judges will review the logo designs based on creativity, as well as functionality. The winning design will be announced Monday, August 2, 2021.

Submissions should be delivered in a sealed envelope (that is not folded) to:  Clayton Chamber of Commerce, Attn: Village 150th Logo Contest, 517 Riverside Drive, Clayton NY 13624. High resolution artwork can be emailed to:
