[May 29, 2010]  Lincoln College reached out to the community for submissions to its Lynx logo contest to develop a new icon for its sports teams. Haley Welch, an eighth-grader from Lincoln Junior High School, and Danielle Burgrabe, a fifth-grader from Zion Lutheran School, were the winners.

HardwareThe contest for grade school and junior high schools was conducted earlier this spring, and a winner from each level was selected from many entries. The main guidelines for the original logo designs were to include an image of a Lynx, the Lincoln College mascot.

"Our Lincoln College Lynx represents the pride and spirit of our athletic teams, and we really appreciate having our hometown artists helping us to create an image for a new era!" commented President John Hutchinson.

Students in kindergarten through eighth grade submitted their designs, and the winning artists will have their logos used for various promotions by the college. The two winners each received a Lincoln College Lynx T-shirt and a pizza party for their class, hosted by Lincoln College athletes.

Their talent will be seen for years to come, as Lincoln College head coach Dave Klemm noted.

"We will have the two winning logos from the local schools framed and on display in the new Lincoln Center for all visitors to enjoy," he said.

The contest was part of several activities celebrating the opening of the college’s new athletic and convocation center this year.

Lincoln College at Lincoln is a two-year, private liberal arts college, designed to prepare students for university study through a structured, supportive approach to learning. More information can be found at
