Logo Submissions are Due By Friday, March 22, 2024

Northampton County Executive Lamont G. McClure and the Northampton County Parks and Recreation Division celebrate 50 years in 2024 of providing recreational and conservation initiatives to the public.

In 1975, a search for the design of the Northampton County Parks logo was first initiated, returning sixty-three individual entries. In December 1975, a student from Northampton Community College, Ms. Colleen M. Hayne of Bath, PA, was announced as the winner of the design. For nearly the past 50 years, the logo has sustained and continues to be the prominent icon.

The Northampton County Parks and Recreation Division is excited to announce the launch of a similar logo competition to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Division beginning today.

High school students are encouraged to be competitive and provide a design that will be unique but comprehensive to Northampton County Parks & Recreation. This logo will be incorporated in all 50th Anniversary planned events, marketing, and giveaways. In addition, the Division is promoting a new “Get Outdoors NorCo” that will promote all of its upcoming and future free public events and programs.

“Our youth were essential to our Division’s efforts and progress over the last 50 years. With pressures from development, loss of habitat, weather changes, and continuous support to preserve, protect, and enhance our public spaces, this is an excellent opportunity for youth to help promote the County’s initiatives into the future,” said Bryan S. Cope, Superintendent of Parks & Recreation.

The submission deadline for the “50th Anniversary” and “Get Outdoors NorCo” logos is no later than 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 22, 2024. All entries must be submitted to Emily Correll, Parks Clerical Specialist, at ecorrell@norcopa.gov.

Winners will be announced in April 2024.
