Manitoba's Spirited Energy Slogan Doomed
I've been carefully following Manitobans' reactions and sentiments toward Manitoba's new Spirited Energy slogan announced in June of this year.
I thought it was a misguided effort then, and I still think it is. Apparently, many Manitobans feel that way, too. Tom Brodbeck of the Winnipeg Sun has reconfirmed that the Spirited Energy slogan has been roundly criticized and ridiculed.
Tom took matters into his own hands yesterday, July 13th, inviting Manitobans to create a better slogan. Just today, Brodbeck reported on some promising slogan entries he has received from Manitobans:
- Manitoba - Heart of the Continent
- Manitoba - The Jewel of the North
- Manitoba - Prairie Paradise
- Manitoba - Explore your Dreams
- Manitoba - The Centre of it All
Oh, these didn't cost $600,000, which was paid to a naming consultant to come up with Spirited Energy.
