State College Borough Announces Slogan Contest

The State College Borough announced the creation of the LION Challenge Contest, open for all State College community members to submit their unique definition or descriptions of what it means to live in one neighborhood. This slogan contest is open to all community members, and winners will have their submissions published during fall 2015.

Submissions to the LION Challenge Contest can take several forms:

  1. A 150-word statement that articulates a unique definition of Living In One Neighborhood (LION)
  2. A 75-character message in the form of a tweet that creatively represents what Living In One Neighborhood (LION) personally means
  3. A slogan or tagline with visual element saved as a PDF with 11-by-17-inch dimensions (this visual element can be a sketch, drawing, photo, poster, or icon)

Submissions will be accepted from March 2 through April 3. Four winning contestants will receive recognition and prizes for their submission, in addition to the publication of their slogans. The F8 Committee and the Community Engagement Office will publish the award-winning messages and slogans throughout the State College community in Fall 2015.

The LION Challenge Contest seems to be an opportunity for community members and residents to present a message or slogan that showcases their positive experiences living in a town-and-gown community. It joins a family of LION-branded initiatives launched by the borough that envision communities of students and long-term residents working together to build community capacity.

To learn more about the contest and submit an entry, visit the LION Challenge website. You can also see a list of FAQs here.
