April 15, 2004 – Can St. Croix's impact on Alexander Hamilton and Hamilton's impact on the United States be tied together in one logo?
Lt. Gov. Vargrave Richards thinks so and is offering $500 to whoever can do it best, but they have to do it by April 30..
"Hamilton: The Formative Years," will be held July 9 to12 on St. Croix. It will include scholarly presentations, walking tours, and other activities exploring the influence of Hamilton’s youthful experiences on his later accomplishments.
Richards is spearheading the commemorative event to draw attention to Hamilton’s St. Croix connections.
Hamilton came to St. Croix from Nevis at age 9 and remained until he was 17. Local benefactors, recognizing his intelligence and ambition, sent him to attend college in New York. Hamilton went on to become a Founding Father of the United States and his face now graces the ten dollar bill.
Winner of the Hamilton logo contest will receive a $500 cash prize from the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. The winning logo will be used for promotional purposes.
To enter, contact the Office of the Lieutenant Governor for an entry form, complete and submit to: 2004 Hamilton Logo Contest, Office of the Lieutenant Governor, United States Virgin Islands, 1105 King Street, St. Croix, VI 00820.
For additional information, call Angela Johnson in the Office of the Lieutenant Governor at 773-6449.
