SAND SPRINGS, Oklahoma -- A Sand Springs teen's design was chosen for the city's centennial logo. Sand Springs celebrates its 100-year anniversary in 2012.

Nearly three dozen citizens chose 15-year-old Toni Sabelo's design from 10 finalists Thursday evening.

The circular logo depicts several different elements.

According to a news release, the green symbol at the top of the logo's interior and the arched emblem between the dates are motifs used on the Sand Springs Museum (former Page Memorial Library) in downtown Sand Springs.

The yellow figures that wrap the circular sides between the names "Sand Springs" and "Centennial Celebration" are leafs of the Indian Blanket flower representing the Oklahoma grasslands where the community originated.

The logo will be used on several items and will be displayed at many events as Sand Springs approaches its centennial in May 2012.
