Last year the students at the Shawboro Elementary School in Currituck County and the Corolla Wild Horse Fund requested that the Colonial Spanish Mustang be designated the Official State Horse of North Carolina. It was.
Perhaps we will see a few more state symbols added to the list during the current Legislative Session.
A bill was introduced in the House earlier this week to designate stock car racing as the Official State Sport for North Carolina. The bill is the result of the effort of students at Lake Norman Elementary and Mount Mourne School, who have been petitioning for the designation.
That’s not all.
WRAL news in Raleigh has been polling Web site visitors as to what they think the State’s Official Dessert should be.
If new symbols pass, you will be able to read about them in the NCpedia Symbols pages: http://ncpedia.org/symbols.
