School district revamps tiger mascot after MU agent's concerns

Wednesday, June 3, 2009 | 9:08 a.m. CDT

HARRISBURG, S.D. — The Harrisburg Tigers now sport a school mascot that's free of any trademark violations.

The school district just south of Sioux Falls was contacted earlier this year by the licensing agent for MU because its logo was similar to the Missouri tiger.

The school stopped using the emblem and held a contest for a new mascot, which drew 46 submissions of original artwork from students and staff.

Students voted on the top eight entries, and a graphic designer hired by the district combined three of the submissions into a new logo.
