30th Anniversary

Rob Hibbitts

For years, Rob Hibbitts sent in his WNCW donations in envelopes that always featured colorful drawings of nature - mountains, creeks, flora and fauna. This week, he won the top vote for "Best WNCW 30th Anniversary Logo" in a contest we held in May and June 2019.

We called upon 20 different judges to help choose their favorite logo, and nine of them chose Hibbitts' vibrant graphic as their number one choice out of 28 submissions. Many judges included his work in their second and third choices.

We're sending out a big thank you to folks who have already submitted graphics for consideration for our WNCW 30th Anniversary Logo Contest. We're happy for the response and feedback! It's open to everyone, no age limit. We'd greatly appreciate your ideas... we know we have a lot of super creative listeners out there who can help us come up with a special design to celebrate our BIG THREE O!

Here’s how it works:

We’re getting ready to celebrate our 30th  Anniversary! In 1989, October 13th, the first DJs at WNCW opened the mic and we went live, from Spindale, NC.  And, yes – it was a Friday! We’ve been going strong for almost three decades now, thanks to our volunteers, members, musicians, underwriters, sponsors and amazing staff members. Most of you are familiar with the many different logos we have created over the years. This year, we thought it would be cool to hold a contest to create a 30th Anniversary Logo for our Fall Fundraiser merchandise.
