Mission Statement

Friends of Mexico Point Park, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 1992 and dedicated to the preservation, protection and promotion of Mexico Point State Park, Spy Island historical site, and Casey’s Cottage.

Design a Logo for Friends of Mexico Point Park

The Friends of Mexico Point Park need a logo to display on the new kiosk and signs that are currently being designed for the Park, as well as on stationery, online presence and promotional materials. In order to encourage community involvement, and because we found so much creativity among members of the community when we had our contest to design the stained glass windows for Casey’s Cottage, we decided to hold a contest to design the logo for the Friends of Mexico Point Park. The Friends would like a logo that is simple, elegant, distinctive, conveys the beauty of the park, and expresses the creative energy that its volunteers bring to the park for the community.

The contest is open to all, and The Friends are offering a $250 cash prize for the person who creates the winning design. The Friends of Mexico Point Park Board will judge the contest entries and will select the winner, provided that there is an entry that meets the standards and tastes of the Friends of Mexico Point Park Board. If no entry meets the Board’s standards, additional rounds of contest entries may be conducted until a winning design is chosen.

The logo contest entry deadline is April 1, 2023 at 11:59 pm. Entries may be mailed along with the name of the designer and contact information (address, email address, phone number) to Friends of Mexico Point Park; 818 County Route 16; Mexico, NY 13114, or email your entry as a TIFF, PNG, GIF, JPEG or PDF file emailed to info@mexicopointpark.com. All email entries received by the deadline and all mailed entries postmarked on or before April 1, 2023, will be submitted into the contest. None of the designs entered will be returned. The Friends of Mexico Point Park Board will take legal ownership of only the winning design and may decide to modify it before establishing it as their official logo. For more information about Mexico Point Park and/or this logo design contest, please email info@mexicopointpark.com or phone 315-529-1589.
