ROCHESTER HILLS, MICH. – The Clinton River Watershed Council is now accepting submissions for its 23rd Annual River Day Logo design contest. The contest encourages local artists to get involved in the promotion of River Day, which will be held Saturday, June 12. The event coincides with Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend and Great Lakes and Fresh Water Week. Outdoor events will occur throughout the month of June, including river paddles, fishing derbies, fly-tying lessons, clean up events, native plant sales, and other recreational opportunities. Events for 2021 will be modified to ensure social distancing is observed and all CDC guidelines are implemented.
The Logo Design Contest
The winning River Day 2021 logo design will be used on official River Day shirts and the event guide. The artist’s picture and statement will be hosted on the River Day event page on the CRWC website. The winner of the River Day Logo design contest will receive an official River Day shirt with their design and a one-year membership to the watershed council.
Entries will be judged on their ability to convey River Day's goal of celebration and enjoyment of the Clinton River and Lake St. Clair, as well as their clarity and ability to be reproduced easily at a variety of scales. Judging and selection of the winning design will be completed in April, 2021. The winning design will be announced shortly thereafter.
