The Winnisquam Watershed Network (WWN), Lake Winnisquam’s newly formed lake association, is conducting a logo design competition open to all area high school and college students. Lake Winnisquam is the fourth largest lake in NH and is located within the communities of Meredith, Laconia, Belmont, Tilton and Sanbornton. The lake is a valuable recreational resource in the central lakes region and provides valuable habitat for many species of fish and wildlife, including lake trout, loons, osprey, and bald eagles.

The Winnisquam Watershed Network’s mission is to work together to preserve and protect Lake Winnisquam for future generations. The group’s efforts will include the development and implementation of a comprehensive water quality monitoring program for the lake, working to prevent and control of milfoil and other invasive aquatic species, and working with local municipalities to encourage and support planning on a watershed-wide basis.

Logo designs should be in vector EPS format scalable art and submitted by January 31, 2018 to Any questions about the contest or the organization should also be addressed to that email address.

WWN’s Board of Directors will review the submissions and select the top three for recognition on our website and in local media. The student submitting the winning design will also be awarded a $100 savings bond and their logo will be used on the Winnisquam Watershed Network’s website, official letterhead, publications and promotional materials. The winner will be asked to sign a release granting exclusive rights to the design to the WWN.
