The Village of Buchanan is holding a contest to redesign our Village seal, which appears on the Village letterhead and many other documents. We are looking to reflect the change from the current seal’s industrial symbols to the current environment emphasizing iconic Village features (Village Hall, the clock in the circle, Lents Cove Park), area history, and the local waterfront on the Hudson River.
A panel will be formed to review all the designs submitted and select five finalists. Village residents will then vote to select the winning design. There will be a cash prize which will be announced later.
Vist the contest website: https://sites.google.com/view/buchananlogocontest1/home for a link to submit your design and more information.
