In January of 1986, the Buckeye Centennial Commission advertised for entries in a Centennial Logo Contest. Fourteen entries were submitted for judging before the February 7, 1986 deadline. Three outstanding entries were chosen for final consideration. Presented here is the winning design chosen to be the Official Centennial Logo. The artist, Dick Heiden, shown at right accepting the logo belt buckle numbered 1, created a design which reflects both the contrast and sameness of the Buckeye Valley from 1888 to 1988. Though the timeless mountains haven’t changed noticeably since our ancestors arrival, their dedicated efforts at bringing modern irrigation systems into the Buckeye Valley have turned raw desert land into an agricultural oasis which feeds and clothes hundreds of thousands of people each day. Dick’s design also shows the entry of hi-tec industry, the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, into a valley capable of sustaining the needs of today’s residents and future generations too.
