Gov. Sandoval Announces Logo for Nevada 150th Celebration

Posted: Updated:

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval last night announced Faiss Foley Warren, a STATEWIDE public relations agency, as the winner of Nevada's 150th anniversary logo contest. The Governor unveiled the anniversary logo at the Nevada Day Governor's Banquet to mark the one year countdown to the year-long celebration commemorating Nevada's 150th anniversary of statehood. 

As part of the Celebration's first pre-event initiative, Nevadans were invited design an event logo around the celebration's theme, "Battle Born – Nevada Proud," which the Committee will use in all promotional and event efforts.  The logo contest, open to all interested professional or amateur artists, designers and advertising and public relations agencies that reside in Nevada, was conducted over the summer through a request for proposals.

"I was excited to see so many Nevadans participate in the logo contest," Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval said.  "All of the entries demonstrated enormous pride for our great State and I thank the Nevadans who participated in the process. I'm looking forward to joining with my fellow Nevadans to celebrate Nevada's 150th anniversary."  

"We are extremely proud to have our logo selected for Nevada's 150th knowing it will serve such an important role throughout the celebration," said Melissa Warren, managing partner, Faiss Foley Warren Public Relations and Government Affairs (FFW).  "Our firm is truly 'Nevada Proud'  and fosters a culture of giving back which is why we participated in the logo contest as two of our partners are natives and I have raised my family here for nearly 25 years," Warren said. 

According to FFW graphic designer Don Seiersen, the logo was designed to reflect the "can do" attitude of Nevadans and speak to the struggles and hardship persevered by Nevadans over the years. The logo's colors and symbols commemorate Nevada's past while the logo's contemporary tone speaks to Nevada's future.

Nevada's Sesquicentennial celebration is a non-profit entity formed to develop, fund, promote and host a series of exhibits and events designed to honor the heritage of the Silver State. To learn more about the celebration, please visit www.Nevada150.org.
