Brownsville is the Bicycling Capital of the Rio Grande Valley, and the City of Brownsville is asking local residents to design the logo as part of a community-wide contest beginning Monday, July 6.
The contest is open to Brownsville residents only who are five years old and above at the time of entry. If a resident is under 17 years of age, parents must give their consent on the official entry form, which can be found on the City’s website at www.cob.us, along with the official contest rules.
To enter the contest, participants must:
. download and complete the official entry form,
. choose an age category,
. create a logo, and
. submit the design.
All logo submissions should be original, dynamic, unique, creative, and incorporate the full name of the designation: Bicycling Capital of the Rio Grande Valley or Bicycling Capital of the RGV. The logo must contain the word “Brownsville,” and a drawing of a bicycle. It may also incorporate other imagery or abstract symbols.
All entry designs will be screened and those that meet the guidelines and
specifications will be judged by City staff and volunteers. One winner in each age category will receive a prize and of the three category winners, one logo will be selected as the overall logo contest winner. An additional prize will be given to the overall grand prize winner chosen from the three category winners. Designs must be submitted electronically to RGVBicyclingCapital@cob.us with the completed entry form by 11:59 p.m., Friday, July 24, 2015. The winner will be notified by July 31, 2015.
The 84th Texas Legislature designated Brownsville as the Bicycling Capital of the Rio Grande Valley through House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 132, and was signed by Texas Governor Greg Abbott on June 18, 2015.
