Township’s Logo Contest Submissions

twp logo picPHOTOS: As earlier reported, the Township recently held a Township-wide contest for children to create a new logo for Lakewood in a rebranding effort by the Township to create a new image for the Town. Attached are approximately 80 submissions from children around town who took part in the contest.

Last month, Mayor Menashe Miller picked up special submissions from the Special SCHI children, who also took part in the contest.

The winner and runners-up of the logo contest will receive a gift card and name recognition from the Township when the winners are announced in the coming weeks.

  1. I think the kids put alot into this project and should all be applauded for a wonderful job. On the other hand there is a famous quote “If it’s not broke then don’t fix it”, there is still no good reason to spend all of this money to change the township logo all we are doing is spending money that can be put elsewhere alot of people have made severe scarifices over the past year. This new logo is not gonna get Lakewood anymore money, leave it alone and give these children an award of some type for the hard work they performed.

  2. kudos kids. now lets see a pro and lets change the old – and I mean oooold – horse and buggy. any second now, I expect to see R’ Zishe (der rebbe) get out of the carriage,

  3. These aren’t logos – these are the results of a campaign to build some local awareness and pride of Lakewood among its youth population. These can’t be used as logos since they aren’t logos. A logo is a financial decision – effective “place branding” can literally impact the bottom line of a city or town. A branding agency should be hired to develop an exciting, attractive brand “voice” for Lakewood, NJ to attract outside businesses, and as an added side bonus, infuse local pride into this community. I’m a local frum resident and branding professional. We do branding for international clients. Any business professional who has ever spent money on professional design services will understand just how powerful this can be. Even if a town is not a business, smart local government will understand the value of running their affairs like a business – generating income and boosting its local economy.

  4. to # 2 I agree with you also, i have lived here for more than 31yrs and the logo is fine. what kind of logo could there be other then the orginal one. keep it the same

  5. i cant say i dont agree with the wasting money aspect and i’m not saying its not a waste of time, but as a sibling of a down syndrom girl, i cant help smiling that schi’s students got a shot at this and i hope they win.

  6. Kids made these! Why are people knocking them? Personally I like the 2nd or 3rd one with the yellow ducks the best. I also think it was really sweet of some of them to incorporate Chris Matlosz’s badge # 317.

    Good job by all the kids!

  7. Around 20 years ago (back in the 1900’s!) the Cheder held a contest to come up with a new name for the Cheder Weekly, which is the newsletter given out to each תלמיד on ערב שבת.

    There were a lot of submissions, but the winning selection (and the newsletter is still called that to this day) was (drumroll, please):

    The Cheder Weekly

    Yes, it is nice to involve the kids and make them part of the process, but if your goal is to present the Township and create a good impression, you want a professional job. And, in agreement with #8, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    It’s quaint, it’s cute, and it is a זכר of what Lakewood once was
