The Town of High River is adding more time to a contest they are holding to come up with a name and logo for the new High River Broadband initiative.

The Town’s Economic Development Division is looking for artists and inspired community members to submit their ideas in the contest which now closes May 18th instead of May 11th.

“The Town is looking for a name and visual identity to describe our project to provide broadband services to the community,” says Jodi Dawson, manager of economic development.

“We are seeking current residents and other interested external audiences who can suggest an appropriate name for the project, as well as design a creative, innovative and professional logo or wordmark.”

Dawson adds that the name and logo should be recognizable and help promote the Town’s mission for the project, ‘to create an environment where reliable and affordable high speed broadband (internet) services are available to businesses in the Town located within the identified business districts.’ Connection to the Economic Development themes of ‘Progressive, Invested, Purposeful’ is also desired.  

The contest is open now and submissions will be accepted through May 18.
