    Over the last couple of weeks someone has been circulating so-called BP oil claim forms in the Lake Charles area. While man, if not most medical claims associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill have been settled, someone is holding meetings around the Lake area trying to get people to sign up.

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

McNeese State University is launching a radio station in 2014 and the public is invited to submit ideas for a logo and slogan, according to a news release from the university.

"This will be a non-profit radio station supported by volunteers from McNeese and the community," said Candace Townsend, McNeese director of public relations.

Officials said programming will include several music formats, information about McNeese cultural events, news and announcements related to weather and road conditions.

"We will also add this to our communication tools for announcing emergency messages and closures," Townsend said.

McNeese has secured the call letters KBYS, for Cowboys, for the station that will be located at 88.3 FM. Plans also include streaming the audio on the Internet.

Entries for the logo and slogan contest must include McNeese, KBYS and 88.3.

"They should be consistent with the McNeese brand and we are looking for designs with a retro look," said Ginny Karg, McNeese marketing director.

Logo designs should be submitted as a vector file if possible and should work in either black and white or color.

Entries must be received by May 31 and will be reviewed by a panel of judges that include McNeese administration, faculty, staff, students and alumni. They will be narrowed to a group of finalists. These will be posted on the official McNeese Facebook page for a second round of public voting. The results of the public vote will be considered in the final decision by McNeese. The winner will receive a pair of 2013 McNeese football season tickets.

Entries can be submitted via email to marketing@mcneese.edu.

Be sure to include your name and phone number. Contest details can be found at www.mcneese.edu/announcement/logo_contest_for_mcneese_radio_station_underway.
