2021 Update: The winning name was "Sentinel Hall"!
Here is your chance to leave a mark on the Oswegatchie Educational Center and the New York FFA.
The New York FFA Foundation is looking for your help in finding the right name for this amazing new building!
It has been an incredible ride since the original funding of $2,000,000 was granted by New York State to start the project. There was another $1,600,000 of fundraising needed. A tremendous amount of design work was accomplished while working with Purcell Construction and Beardsley Architects. Lastly, a global pandemic shut down summer camp in the same month that we received the keys. Its been an unforgettable couple of years.
This is your chance to suggest a name that will adorn this building for decades. When you think about the thousands of campers to pass through these doors, that name will be on the mind of everyone.
What makes a good name? Before you submit your selection, brainstorm a dozen names that all sound good, and then pick the 1 or 2 that you like the best. You may want to do a google search to make sure that name is not already in use. For example, "Long Pond Lodge" is actually used 6 other times in the Adirondacks. If the name is too common, it will not be a good fit. Not only should the name pay homage to the "sense of place" , but it needs to be useful for online searches.
To submit your suggestion, please complete the form below. Please read the form thoroughly before submitting. Contest ends March 31st.
If you are the winner, you will receive a two night stay for in the "Victoria L. Pinney Gregory Suite" aka the Long Pond Getaway. (lodging only, no meals; donated by Vicky Gregory)
