ICEDC logo designer identified



The Iowa County Economic Development Commission (ICEDC) recently announced the winner of its logo design contest.

Mary-Jane Owen, 30, Williamsburg, is the computer lab technician at Mary Welsh Elementary. Owen used computer software in shaping the design, which depicts an image of hilly farmland extending to meet blue, open sky spread across the acronym “ICEDC.”

“I was trying to think of the economic development of Iowa County and a lot of that has to do with an agricultural background, so I thought that something agricultural would be nice to have,” Owen explained.

The design was chosen from six other images entered into the contest. Owen received a $50 gift certificate to Tanger Outlet Mall, Williamsburg, for her winning entry.

The Iowa County Economic Development Commission is made up of 20 commissioners — two representatives from every incorporated town in the county, two from the Amana Society, two from Iowa County Farm Bureau and two representatives from the Iowa County Board of Supervisors. Its purpose is to serve as an independent entity that promotes the growth of new businesses in the county, the retention of current businesses and provides educational support on economic development.

The next meeting of the ICEDC will be held March 24, at 6:30 p.m., at the Kirkwood Learning Center, Williamsburg.
