Winter Games 41 & 42 Concept Contest Now Open!

Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted an early spring, but winter is still on our minds at the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber. After an awesome 40th year celebration, we are anxiously looking ahead to the 41st and 42nd Annual University of Okoboji Winter Games. The Winter Games Committee is seeking design concept ideas for the upcoming games scheduled for January 28-31, 2021 and January 27-30, 2022. The design concept will be utilized on all Winter Games merchandise as well as print advertising, entry forms, social media, mailings, and website promotions.


Design Concepts should be:

  • easily screen printed and embroidered
  • in a high-resolution JPG or EPS format
  • gender neutral
  • no more than three colors
  • submitted to by March 10th, 2020 at 5 PM for consideration


The concept contest creates an opportunity to showcase and utilize locals and their talents, showcase their vision of this community event, and provides heightened exposure for the designer whose logo is selected. If necessary, the final concept logo will be polished by a professional graphic artist.
