‘One great birthday party:’ Governor kicks off North Dakota’s 125th celebration
BISMARCK – Gov. Jack Dalrymple predicted “one great birthday party” for North Dakota as officials kicked off the 125th anniversary of statehood Tuesday and unveiled the official logo for the yearlong celebration.
The logo, which features a bison head and sheaves of wheat, was designed by Eric Falde of West Fargo. He received a $500 prize from the North Dakota Humanities Council for having his logo selected over nearly 50 others in a statewide contest, said Janean Rambough, the 125th anniversary coordinator.
Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley, who led the celebration’s planning committee, announced two signature events.
