We need your help!

Broome County Office of Emergency Services needs your help finding a new mascot. Everyone remembers the lessons of Smokey the Bear; We’re looking to create something similar to help us educate Broome County Residents. Learning about Preparedness and Emergency

Management at every age is critical to helping Broome County be resilient and ready.  We believe having a mascot will help us make learning more fun for everyone in the family.

The contest will run through March 17 and is open to all Broome County Residents.  The Office of Emergency Services will pick their top 5 choices and then have the public vote on who our new mascot will be.

The Artist that creates the winning mascot will win a Hot Air Balloon Ride for 2 at The 2023 Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally, a Family 4 Pack of tickets to the concert events, and VIP onsite parking passes for all three days!

Entering is as simple as 1, 2, 3.

  1. pick up an OES entry form from one of the four locations around the County or print one off our website.
  2. Create and draw your new Mascot on the form, giving a brief introduction.
  3. Drop off, email, mail, or fax your entry into the Broome County Office of Emergency Services.
