City of Statesville Deadline Nov 4


Statesville needs a mascot.  Even with all its beautiful parks and greenways, historic landmarks, fun festivals and lots and lots of really great residents – there’s  no mascot to represent Statesville’s all-encompassing spirit.

The contest is open to all ages, and individuals can enter as many design ideas as they want.  “There are cash prizes and a lot of bragging rights,” said Richard Griggs, Statesville Recreation and Parks Director, and a member  of the Mascot Contest committee.  “After the design is selected, we will get to work bringing the mascot to life and introducing him … or her … or it … to the community.  We hope the mascot becomes a fixture at all of our Statesville events.”

The deadline for submissions is Monday, Nov. 4 at 5 p.m.   Submissions can be emailed to mascot@statesvillenc.net or  dropped off at Statesville City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce or the Statesville Fitness and Activity Center.

For an application form or more information on the contest, go to www.statesvillenc.net/mascot,  call 704-878-3586 or emailmascot@statesvillenc.net.
