PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Fourteen products have been licensed by five different companies for this year’s 125th anniversary of South Dakota’s statehood-according to figures released last week. A commission appointed by Governor Dennis Daugaard met Friday to approve a final report for the Governor which includes ideas for celebrating the state’s 125th birthday this year. During the meeting, the group learned that some products that have already been approved for commercial use of the 125th anniversary logo include banners, apparel, jewelry and more. Mike Mueller of the South Dakota Bureau of Administration:
Mueller says companies that have paid for the rights to use the logo are both in and out-of-state businesses.
Mueller told the commission Friday that he expects more inquiries in coming months from companies interested in getting approval to use the anniversary logo for various products.
More information on logo licensing and other details for this year’s anniversary can be found on the website www.125.sd.gov. Mueller also advised the commission that 125th anniversary banners were added Friday to two dozen lamp-posts that are located near the Capitol on the grounds of the building. They replaced Christmas at the Capitol banners that had been up over the holiday season.
