Contest urges people to 'top this' on Space Needle
Wednesday, August 22, 2012
The roof of Seattle's iconic Space Needle was repainted Tuesday with the message "top this" to promote a new contest in honor of the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World's Fair, which was held in Seattle and for which the Space Needle was built.
The Space Needle Corp. said it wants the public's help in designing the 605-foot tower's roof's next paint job, which will be on display from Oct. 21 through April 21.
The deadline for design and color submissions is Sept. 20. Entries will be narrowed by a panel of judges, and the public will pick the winner.
