The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) is looking for a slogan for Carnival 2011. As is customary, the foundation has opened up the process of selecting a slogan to the general public. The person who submits the eventual slogan will win a season pass to the Carnival Village for Carnival 2011.
Submissions can be emailed right away to firstname.lastname@example.org. It has also been a tradition to have the slogan rhyme with the Carnival year. In other words, slogans must rhyme with ‘2011’. Deadline for submitting slogans is December 1, 2010.
"Carnival is the people’s festival and as such we seek to involve the community in all facets as much as possible," President of the SCDF Stuart Johnson said. "So here we are again turning to the public for a lively, catchy, short and sweet slogan for Carnival 2011.
We hope to get a number of submissions to choose from. So spread the word, we need your help," Johnson said.
The slogan for Carnival 2011 will be displayed on Carnival posters, calendars, radio ads, website, Facebook page (currently being setup). "Our slogan helps to set us apart so make it catchy," Johnson concluded.
