 IOCS Announces New Logo Contest In addition to all of the other exciting events surrounding Iola ’15, the Iola Old Car Show is seeking the creative talents of the auto hobbyist and community in designing a new logo to represent the Iola Old Car Show organization into the future. Even if you are not interested in submitting a design, you can still be involved in the process by voting for your favorite new logo, during the car show. The Board of Directors and Car Show Staff will select finalists. For consideration, the submitted design must include the iconic car show tower.  The finalist will be displayed and voted upon in the Team to Learn/ Exhibit Tent, during the Iola ’15 weekend. The winning logo design will be announced during Super Saturday and the designer will be awarded $500.00. To enter a logo design, simply submit your work by June 8, 2015. Entries can be submitted electronically by emailing or in person at the Iola Old Car Show Office, located at 160 N. Chet Krause Drive, Iola. Upon submission, all designs become the property of the Iola Old Car Show, Inc. Happy designing!
