Foothills Coalition Launches Contest for Mascot and Related Logo

Thursday, August 25, 2022 7:34 PM | Dennis Brooke

The Foothills Rails-to-Trails Coalition is running a contest for artists who want to help us create a mascot and related graphics for the coalition. We are looking for ideas that could be used on our websites, shirts, stickers, and other giveaways. It is meant to be a fun graphic, appealing to both kids and adults, to be used in addition to our official logo.

Sasquatch is an unofficial mascot of the coalition. He is known to make appearances at our events—including our annual Rainier to Ruston race as shown in the pictures below. Designs related to our furry friend would be a welcome option.

However, other ideas related to our mission and history, are fair game as well. Many of our trails are built on former railroad beds. They are used by bikers, walkers, runners, horse riders. See our website for more information about our history and plans

What does the winner get?

1.     A $100 REI or Amazon gift card.
2.     A story about them in the Trail Line News.
3.     Potential for future contract work.
4.     A link to their website from ours.
5.     An ad in the Trail Line News.
6.     The opportunity to support a great non-profit building an expanding network of trails in Pierce County and beyond.
