As the County continues to work with representatives from the community and those who were directly impacted by the tragic events of the 1 October shooting, Clark County’s 1 October Memorial Committee is reaching a critical phase in the creation of a lasting memorial that remembers the victims, honors the survivors and first responders, and recognizes the resilience of our community.

Clark County and the Committee are inviting anyone wishing to express an idea or any other form of creative expression to submitthrough the online portal. These submissions can be drawings, short videos, poems, songs, etc., and submitters are asked to provide a short description of what they are submitting so that the design teams understand the emotion or creativity they are trying to convey. Individual artists interested in contributing to the creation of a memorial are invited to share their resumes or portfolios as well. Submissions are available in an online gallery for viewing if participants grant permission. Professional design teams will be required to review all Creative Expressions submissions to inform their concepts for the memorial, and the public will be able to view the formal design proposals before a selection is made next year. Creative expressions may be submitted through September 30thand viewed here:
