Where is the WSU Logo? Cougar Fans: Here is Your Chance to Show Us!
July 11, 2007
PULLMAN, Wash. - It has been seen in the state of Washington, across the nation, and, in many instances, throughout the world. From apparel, license plates, and cheese tins to the 50-yard line on the FieldTurf surface at Martin Stadium, and everywhere in between.
It is the logo of Washington State University: the Cougar Head Monogram, a logo that has become so recognizable that when one speaks of, or thinks about, WSU, chances are it is the logo that appears as their initial vision of the University.
Now, here is your chance to show WSU Athletics where you have taken the logo.
WSU Athletics announces the Holiday Inn "Where is the Cougar Head Logo?" Photo Contest. Through the end of the business day on August 10, WSU fans can submit via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) a picture showing the Cougar logo at a famous or unique location throughout the state, nation or world.
Three winners will be named in the contest. Each will receive a WSU T-shirt and a gift certificate for a free night's stay at Pullman's award winning Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites.

The contest is not the only promotion WSU Athletics is featuring this summer involving the Cougar logo.
In the early `90s, a print commemorating the logo and its creator Randall Johnson was placed on sale to the public. A total of 1,250 prints were made, and all were personally signed by Johnson. The funds from the print were directed toward the Spokane Cougar Club Endowment, which was renamed the Randall Johnson Endowed Scholarship in 1995.
Not all of the prints were sold during the original sale, and the ones not sold were placed in a storage area in the Bohler Athletic Complex.
In honor of Randall Johnson, who passed away earlier this year, and the countless contributions he made to WSU, the WSU Athletic Department will place 200 of these 20 x 24 prints on sale for the special price of $200 (plus $25 shipping and handling) Wednesday, July 18 at 10 a.m. at wsucougars.com. Every dollar from the $200 cost of the print will be directed toward the Randall Johnson Endowed Scholarship.
