The mission of this centennial celebration is to honor the past and present of Carolina Beach and to inspire its continued growth and prosperity into the next century. Tagline: Waves of the past carried on the tides of tomorrow.

At last night’s council meeting Carolina Beach Centennial Committee Chair, (amongst many other titles) Maureen Lewis shared, “How we chose- All Artists with ties to Carolina Beach (lived, worked, played, or stayed in CB) were encouraged to submit designs for consideration. I even had the opportunity to present this contest to the sports marketing students at Ashley High School. At the November 2020 CB 100 Committee meeting, all the submissions were numbered and put on display. Artist names were not visible. The committee then spent over an hour debating the merits of each design. We are so lucky to have such a gifted talent pool with 13 Adult submissions.

The committee narrowed the designs to 2 finalists and sent notes to the 2 Artists for some minor tweaks. After the revised logos were received, the committee then voted via email on their #1 choice. I cannot iterate enough how hard it was to choose because each submission was thoughtful, vibrant and exciting. We do plan to use all the submissions in some way throughout the Centennial. 

I am here today to ask you to please confirm your approval for the following

For the Adult Logo, Brent Myers is our winner. You may be familiar with some of Brent’s work- he as designed several of the Low Tide Run t-shirts. The committee appreciated that Brent kept the existing CB logo and designed around it- keeping true to our tagline.

For the Youth Logo, our winner is Giovanna Cannistraci-Ortiz, a 6-year-old who attends CB Elementary School. We appreciated G’s including all the things that she loves about CB in her logo- Venus fly trap, sun, surf and sand.

If approved, the Brent will be award $250, and Giovanna will be awarded $50 funded by the Island Arts Council. All submissions will be framed and ready to hang compliments of Skip Sprague and Tip Top Frames. The committee hopes the staff will hang all the artwork either in Council Chambers or in a public hallway for the community to view.

After your vote (if confirmed) we would ask Mayor Barbee if he would do the honors of presenting the checks to the to the winners.”

Mayor Barbee along with council unanimously confirmed the art as official logos. Special thanks to the Island Arts Council who generously funded the winnings given to the both artist.
