Artists Wanted: Enter The River Day Logo Contest

ROCHESTER HILLS (WWJ) – If you have a hand for art, then you should enter the Clinton River Watershed Council’s 14th Annual River Day logo contest.

The winning River Day 2012 logo will be used on websites, event guides, t-shirts and signage all across the watershed to promote River Day on Saturday, June 9, 2012. River Day events include festivals, fishing derbies, fly-tying lessons, clean up events and naturalist-led hikes through parks and trailways.
