I-LHS junior wins Meredith 250th Anniversary logo contest

MEREDITH — Meredith's 250th Anniversary Celebration logo contest was won by Malik Carter, a junior at Inter-Lakes High School (ILHS). A check for $250, donated by ReMax Bayside owner Chris Kelly was presented to Carter. Jack Carty, chairman of the 250th Logo Committee, specified that the logo had to contain a latchkey, incorporate Indian Island and the mountains and lakes that surround Meredith.

Patrick Quinn, graphic arts teacher at ILHS and Armand Peters, retired graphic arts professor from Lakes Region Community College mentored the project and had high praise for the time and enthusiasm that Carter gave to designing the logo. Steve Durand, Chairman of Meredith's 250th Anniversary Committee said it was a great example of cooperation between the town committee and the school system.

Meredith will celebrate its sestercentennial in 2018. The 250th Meredith Anniversary Committee has been meeting since August 2013. Its membership includes over 30 Meredith residents, including members representing a variety of local civic and non-profit organizations. The Committee is being facilitated by the Greater Meredith Program's Promotion Committee.
