— The Ticonderoga First 250 Years Committee is seeking a logo to represent the commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the settlement of Ticonderoga.

The logo will be featured in promotions on-line and printed on various materials.

The group is holding a contest to find a logo. The competition is open to any individual, organization, business, educational institution or group. All submissions must contain a primary graphic that is a visual/artistic representation of the commemoration and must include the text: Ticonderoga, 250 Years, 1764-2014.

The logo contest rules are available at the Hancock House, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce and Community Building. Rules can also be requested by calling the Hancock House at 585-7868 Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The committee, co-sponsored by the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum and the Ticonderoga Historical Society, has been formed to lead the community in commemorating the 250th anniversary of the settlement of Ticonderoga and both the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Lake Champlain (War of 1812) and the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.

“The purpose is for every individual, teacher, student, family, organization, association, club, business, church, etc. to delight in and celebrate preserving and sharing our rich history and common past,” said June Curtis of the committee.

The contest winner will be awarded $100. The winning logo will be on exhibit at the Ticonderoga Arts Gallery, Hancock House, Heritage Museum, Fort Ticonderoga, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce and Community Building and will be featured in the many commemorative events and activities taking place throughout 2012 to 2014.
