Giant Bison Statue Needs A Name

Tourism officials in Jamestown have launched a contest to name what is billed as the world's largest buffalo statue.

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Tourism officials in Jamestown have

launched a contest to name what is billed as the world's largest

buffalo statue.

Whoever comes up with the winning name for the 26-foot-tall,

60-ton bison statue that has stood near Interstate 94 for half a

century will win $1,000.

Buffalo City Tourism Foundation executive director Nina Sneider

says officials are looking for a name that is both fun and

dignified.

People can submit names through April 15. The winner will be

announced at a ceremony in June.
