The Friends of the Joseph Branch announce an opportunity to win cash and be part of establishing a new future for the Eagle Cap Excursion Train.

The train needs a logo. The design needs to be clean and simple so that it will reproduce well in a wide range of formats, such as on a shirt, ball cap or the side of the train, as well as a small presentation, such as a lapel pin.

The winning designer will receive $300. Submitted designs may be in black and white or color, with the color scheme for the train being dark blue and silver. The judging committee reserves the right to refuse all entries if a winning design is not chosen; and, if a winning design is chosen, it will become the exclusive property of the Friends of the Joseph Branch.

The contest deadline is July 31, 2003. Questions and submissions should be directed to Janet Dodson, Director, Union County Tourism, 102 Elm St., La Grande, OR 97850; phone, (541)963-8533; fax, (541) 963-3936; or e-mail
