Create the Seal for Steele County!

In conjunction with County Government month, Steele County thought it would be fun to run a contest to create a county seal! Steele County currently does not have a seal and what better way than to give residents an opportunity to create something memorable and meaningful to the citizens of Steele County. The contest is open to ALL AGES. Entries need to be turned in by April 30th to the Steele County Auditor's office. Let me know if you have any questions - we encourage teachers to get students involved in this project. Prizes for the top 3 designs will be awarded the 1st week in May. - Emily Halverson Wigen, Steele County Auditor
