Water Management Board seeks logo submissions

| May 3, 2022 7:00 AM

The five-member Flathead Reservation Water Management Board is now meeting regularly as the governing and regulatory body over water users on the Flathead Reservation. As a developing body, the board needs a logo for the office, web page and letterhead.

The board is asking for artistic submissions from everyone, from young students to fledgling artists to skilled design pros. We want to see your ideas.

Here are some guidelines as these need to be visible both small and large.

  • Simple and elegant is best.
  • Logos can be black and white, or three color or less.
  • Themes desired include Unity or United, as in unitarian board.
  • The theme of water, color and spirit are important.

The following language from the Water Compact regarding the board formation is intended to help inspire ideas:

“We desire to create a unitary administration system that would provide a single system for the appropriation and administration of the waters of the Reservation and for the establishment and maintenance of a single system of centralized records for all water uses of the Reservation regardless of whether the use is based on state or federal law.”

“We agree to provide the necessary foundation for the establishment of a board composed of Tribal- and state-appointed representatives to provide for the unified administration of all water resources on the Reservation.”

Please send a PDF or JPG photo or version of the logo. When the board settles on one, members will employ a professional designer to transform the artwork into a logo that’s reproducible for all business purposes.

Send your logo to For additional information, contact Robert McDonald at 406-675-2700, ext. 1222.

The deadline is July 1, and the winner will receive a $100 gift card and recognition from the board.
