GEORGETOWN -- Sussex County has a new economic slogan after council chose the slogan of a 9-year-old Laurel boy in a county-wide contest at its regular meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2002.
After narrowing down the entries to five finalists, council selected the submission of 9-year-old Matthew Parsons of Laurel: "Sussex County is Your Business Partner."
Parsons' submission will replace the 20-year-old county economic slogan, "Sussex County Means Business".
Parsons' entry beat out the other four finalists:
- "There's no business like your business in Sussex County"
Candice Evans, Age 17, 12th Grade, Indian River High School, Frankford
- "Sussex County -- Your Business is our Pleasure"
Robert Short, Age 8, Laurel
- "Sussex County -- The Biggest Part of the First State"
Jasmine Walter, Age 17, 11th Grade, Laurel High School
- "Sussex County -- Taxes are Low, a Good Place to Grow"
Jean Cherestal, Age 13, 8th Grade, Laurel Middle School
Parsons will receive a $100 U.S. Savings Bond, while the four runnersup will receive $50 savings bonds.
