Nevada’s iconic welcome signs to be raffled off
The Nevada Department of Transportation is inviting Nevada residents to enter a raffle to receive a “Welcome to Nevada” sign as the old, obsolete highway signs are redesigned and replaced later this year.
The iconic signs (some depicting a lone miner) have stood at many interstate and freeway entrances into Nevada, welcoming drivers to the state for approximately 25 years. The signs will be replaced by new welcome signs designed by Nevada high school graphic artists through a contest.
One winner will be randomly selected from each region (northwest, northeast, southwest and southeast) shortly before Nevada Day weekend and personally notified as the existing signs are replaced beginning this year.
Only one entry per person is allowed, and winners must be Nevada residents, 18 years or over, and willing to sign a waiver regarding lawful usage of the signage.
