Green Brook-area students invited to participate in logo design contest for event logo

Two years after its inception by the township's GrEEn Design Group, the third annual fall GrEEn Day Environmental and Energy Conservation Fair is spreading its green wings to include its neighbors.

"We've had good success for two years with the group's fair, but it's been at a very local level," said David Patti, a new volunteer of the seven-member GrEEn Design Group.

The new outreach is inviting high school students in the five bordering communities — already connected by school systems, waterways and land boundaries — to create the official logo for a 2009 joint environmental fair.

The winning design, to be announced June 15, will be used to brand the fair's advertising on bags, T-shirts, posters and advertisements, Patti said.
