Soil and Water Conservation District conducts logo contest

(Franklin) — The Heard County High School Digital Design class recently participated in a logo design contest for The West Georgia Soil and Water Conservation District.  

The West Georgia District covers five counties: Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson & Heard Counties.  The District was looking for a way to brand itself and decided that after 75 years, they needed a logo.

District representatives came in February and presented their purpose and their work to the class explaining what they do and what kind of logo they were looking for.

The students, under the instruction of Mrs. Angela Thompson, used Photoshop CC 2014 to begin work on their proposed logo.

On May 12, the class presented their finished logos to Mr. Denny Rogers, chairman of the board for the Soil and Water Conservation District.

Mr. Rogers was very impressed by the hard work and thought that each student put into creating their logo.  

On May 19, the District committee made up of the supervisors from across five counties looked over the logos and voted on their top five.

From that, they narrowed the selection to first, second, and third. Two students tied for third place.

The first place winner is Ms. Haley Hyatt, daughter of Mart and Stephanie Hyatt of Centralhatchee. Her winning logo will be used by the West Georgia Soil and Water Conservation District for marketing purposes – hats, t-shirts and signs.  

The second place winner is Ms. Alyssa Cosper, daughter of  Ben and Beth Cosper of Ephesus. The third place tied winners are Ms. Cheyenne Hallmark, daughter of  April Gutierres and Mr. Timothy Shoemake, son of Chris and Darlene Shoemake. Each of these winners will receive cash prizes.

The Digital Design class enjoyed this live project and learned much about design and branding an organization.
