Chelmsford Dog Park Flag Contest
Two and a half years ago, we ran a contest to design a flag for the Chelmsford Dog Park.
Kriti Signh, a student at Chelmsford High School designed the winning entry. We had that flag printed and it’s been flying at the park since then. We also have t-shirts with the design on them in our online store.
However, weather (especially with the winds at the park) takes it’s toll, and it’s time to retire that flag.
We’re holding a new contest!
The Chelmsford Dog Association is AGAIN looking for a young, local artist to design a logo for the Chelmsford Dog Park flag!
