Our Street Naming Contest is now closed, but we’re still sifting through the entries, finding a good many entries that are pretty competitive. While we’re going to have our finalists announced at our Launch Party at November 15th, here are a few potential candidates that stuck out to us this week:
- Fifth Dimension – It was fairly surprising that there weren’t more dimension-based puns. This was one of those puns.
- Lil’ Bub Street – We had quite a few submissions that suggested Bloomington’s favorite cat, who’s helped raise millions for humane societies across the country.
- Ross Gay Road – This Bloomington-based poet and award-winning professor of creative writing at IU has won multiple honors, including the Kingsley-Tufts Poetry Prize, and a National Book Award Finalist for his collection, Catalogue of Unabashed Gratitude.
- Warp Drive – The more we make our way through the list, the more Star Trek references and puns we keep finding!
That’s all for now. Tune in hopefully later this week for our top 25 submissions!
