Contest announced to design Milford Hall of Fame plaque

— City Clerk Alan Jepson wants to see the Milford Hall of Fame materialize within the year, and is calling on help from city high school students to get it done.
Jepson announced a competition to design the plaque that will honor residents at the Milford Hall of Fame.
“The contest is to stimulate the interest of our high school students,” Jepson said. “It’s a chance for young people to get involved.”
He said a similar contest was used more than 30 years ago to come up with the design for the city flag, which is still in use.
The winner of the current contest will win $100, said school spokeswoman Kathy Bonetti.
Any student at the public or private high schools in Milford can submit an 8½-by-11-inch design that allows space for the honoree’s picture and about 40 words of text with a 1-inch border. Designs must be submitted to the superintendent of schools’ office by May 16.
So far, no nominees for the Milford Hall of Fame have been announced, but a committee has been formed to select individuals who had a significant impact on the city.
Jepson Friday remained tight-lipped about who was even being considered. “That’s for the committee to decide,” he said. “Much of this project still needs to be decided.”
A home for the Milford Hall of Fame has not yet been determined, either.
About six honorees will be chosen for the first class, officials said.
