MINER, MO (KFVS) -

Officials with the City of Miner just announced they are extending the deadline for their public search for a new city logo.

Originally the council was going to vote Tues., Dec. 20 on a design but because of scheduling conflict they're giving everyone until Jan. 17 to submit designs.

City officials said they've been blown away with how many people submitted ideas for a new city logo.

They said they've received well over 100 designs that have come from all over southeast Missouri.

Some area schools even had art classes submit drawings.

City Clerk Darrin Skinner said they've been humbled with the response so far.

"It's going to be hard to choose from. There's so many and so many good ones. So the council, the board, they're going have a hard decision ahead of them."

Skinner said submissions feature a wide variety of original designs.

He said some common themes include Lambert's Cafe and railroad crossings.

Skinner said the council will narrow down the designs prior to the Jan. 17 meeting and vote from that selection.

He said artists will be notified prior to the meeting if their design is selected as a finalist.

The winner will have their work featured on two welcome signs for the City of Miner and receive $100, according to city officials.

Submission Rules

  • The contest is open to everyone of all ages from any city.
  • Submit your entry by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17 to:
  • Contact Miner City Hall with any questions at 573-471-8520
