Congratulations to Taylor Murphy, an 11th grade student at The Dunham School - Baton Rouge, La., for winning Mayor-President Melvin L. "Kip" Holden's Department of Environmental Services logo design contest!

DES Director Karen Khonsari joined Steve Eagleton, Upper School Head of The Dunham School, today to congratulate Taylor in front of all her classmates for her logo design concept, pictured below, which will be used to design a new logo and branding for the department. Mayor Holden will also recognize Taylor at an upcoming meeting of the Metropolitan Council as the department’s new branding is officially announced to the public – all inspired by her winning design!

In total, DES received more than 100 submissions from students throughout East Baton Rouge Parish, highlighting not only how talented our students are, but also the importance of educating them about our City-Parish departments and how much of the work they do relates to the science, technology, engineering, and math concepts students are learning in class. This logo and branding contest, as well as other future initiatives of DES’ school-based outreach program, aim to continue bridging the gap between science and art and help students foster an appreciation for these subjects.

Thank you to each and every one of the students, teachers and school administrators who participated in the contest – we appreciate your help in making it possible and in helping further our shared goal of providing our Baton Rouge students with a brighter future!
