Portage la Prairie Needs A New Slogan

logo portage new logo sept212012

Portage la Prairie needs a new slogan and is hoping you can help come up with it. The Tourism Advisory Committee made a presentation to city council last night, where it discussed the new logo, it created back in the fall to improve the city's brand. Committee Member Guy Moffatt says the next step is coming up with a slogan to go with it.

Moffatt says the committee wants to launch a contest in late February or early March, where the public could submit ideas on what the slogan should be.

"What we are looking for, at the end of the day is a very catchy slogan. Nike has "Just Do It". "I'm Lovin It" is McDonalds and we're looking for something that is very crisp and concise. One sentence that is going to embody what Portage la Prairie is." says Moffatt.

Moffatt says they would like to use social media, such as Facebook, as well as radio and drop boxes across the city, for people to offer a suggestion.

"Once we get all of our submissions in, what we'll do is we'll look at narrowing it down to a top 25. Then we will relaunch through a website, so people can vote for the one, they feel best represents Portage la Prairie."

City Council was pleased with what it heard from the committee. Mayor Earl Porter says it's very important to come up with a singular vision,  that embodies who we are, as a community.

"We've got about 3 or 4 different slogans right now, that really doesn't identify the city and we're really trying to find one that does and that everybody will get behind and support."

A few more details must be worked out before an official slogan contest could begin. Moffatt says once the details have been worked out, they will announce further details.
