ELBURN – The "Shop Elburn First" campaign is looking for a logo, and the Elburn Economic Development Committee is seeking submissions for a new design.

The Elburn EDC is launching the campaign, which, according to a news release, "is to get people to think twice about going elsewhere (usually out of habit) to buy products and services that may be available in Elburn)."

Designs for the logo/tag line contest will be due by midnight Monday, Sept. 1. They should be emailed to Elburn Village Administrator Erin Willrett at ewillrett@elburn.il.us or dropped off at Elburn Village Hall at 301 E. North St., Elburn. Submissions should be on an 8 1/2-by-11-inch page. The contest is open to all ages, and, it its release, the EDC stated, "if you have a box of crayons … let's see it."

The release states the the contest is primarily for a logo, but "if it's accompanied by a new tag line that works better than 'Break the Habit' or 'Shop Elburn First,' then include that with your logo."

The winning design will receive what the release describes as a "generous gift basket from many of the local restaurants and stores."

According to the release: "some buzzwords to draw from" include fun, exciting, prosperous, pride, community, together, team, welcoming and success. "These are all words we would want the logo and the campaign to convey," the release stated.
