WELD COUNTY, CO – Last night at the monthly meeting for the Highway 85 Coalition, a room full of judges narrowed 105 entries for the Centennial Highway Logo Contest down to one design which will represent the corridor through Weld County. Steve Gonser, of Greeley, submitted the winning logo and will receive the $1,000 prize for his design.
“We were very impressed with the quality of entries we had to review,” said Weld County Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer, member of the Highway 85 Coalition. “The creativity of many of the entries made our job difficult. It was great to see so much participation from the community, and we believe the winning logo will represent the 85 corridor well.”
A total of 105 logos, submitted by 44 individuals, were entered into the contest. Each logo was catalogued, given a number and presented to the judges for review at last night’s meeting.
