Quarrier redesign up for public vote
May 13. 2014 1:09PM
The Dell Rapids School District, its booster club and a committee working on a redesign of the Quarrier logo are ready to hear your opinion.
Last year Jeff Dvorak, activities director for the school district, gained approval from the school board to investigate a possible update to the Quarrier mascot and logo used by the school since the 1960s.
“Through the efforts of students and professionals alike, there are five options for Quarrier fans to choose from,” Dvorak said. “Now, we need help from Quarrier nation.”
Below is a brief description of each image provided by Dvorak. Vote for your favorite by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/quarriers. Use the numbers above the images when casting your ballot.
The survey is open through May 22. Votes can also be cast in person at the school district office through Friday.
#1 “The strength of this mascot is very obvious. He is moving forward with confidence and power. His clean lines and rounded shape along with a modern font above the rocks makes him appealing to the eye.”
#2 “The sharpness of the pick-axe provides a nice contrast with the ring holding our school name. This chiseled Quarrier seems as strong as stone and ready to go to work.”
#3 “He has certainly stood the test of time for over 50 years. Our traditional Quarrier would be updated in a more technologically friendly format so his image could be duplicated with consistency for another 50 years or more.”
#4 “The pride and power is clear. He is standing with the expression and posture of determination and pride. His detailed look is a bit more traditional, and he sits atop the Quarrier Rock - a font that resembles the look of stone.”
#5 “This clean, sleek, yet strong look is a mix of strength and speed. He provides a very modern style that is simple and easily transferable to clothes and uniforms while the swinging of the axe adds speed and motion.”
