Just as Crystal Lake South students picked a new Gator logo three years ago, Prairie Ridge and Cary Grove students now have the opportunity to select new designs for their schools.
Prairie Ridge High School
Prairie Ridge High School, located at 6000 Dvorak Dr. in Crystal Lake, opened in August 1997, and the wolf was selected as the school's mascot.
Since that time, many different wolf logos have been used in many different settings, District 155 spokesman Jeff Puma said. However, no single image or design served as the “official” logo for the school, even to this year.
For that reason, Prairie Ridge is holding a design/creation contest for a new official wolf logo, and the school is inviting current students, alumni, faculty and staff, parents and other community members to participate in the contest.
The new official logo will adorn the school’s walls, appear on the school’s letterhead, and decorate the uniforms of student athletes.
Logo designs must be submitted by Friday, December 13.
Cary-Grove Trojans High School
Just like Prairie Ridge, Cary-Grove High School also has used several different Trojan logos over its 52-year history, but the school does not have one official logo exclusive to the school, Puma said.
Cary-Grove is turning to its talented students, parents, alumni, and community to help design and select a new logo that will carry on the Trojan tradition for years to come.
The new logo will represent Cary-Grove High School on letterhead, murals, uniforms, and school website.
Logo submissions for Cary-Grove are due on Jan. 10, 2014.
