DNR unveils Legacy Amendment logo - FishNews - 01-16-2011

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Commissioner Mark Holsten has selected a vibrant logo design to identify all projects funded by the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. The selected logo was designed by Bernadette Stephenson of St. Cloud, Minn.

"The decision was tough because we had so many great entries to consider," said Holsten. "We feel this logo is memorable, distinctive, and sophisticated. It also clearly illustrates the four funds."

All Minnesotans had an opportunity to submit a design in a contest that took place Nov. 8 through Dec. 7. In total, 76 entries were submitted.

"We very much appreciate the efforts of Bernadette and all the other artists," added Holsten. "The winner does not receive a prize, but will receive the admiration and appreciation of Minnesota citizens for many years to come."

The contest was challenging for participants because the logo had to illustrate the clean water, outdoor heritage, parks and trails, and arts and cultural heritage funds that were established following passage of the Legacy Amendment in November 2008. The contest was mandated by the 2010 Legislature.

The logo will be displayed throughout the state at access points to any land or water resources acquired or protected, construction projects, or printed and other materials that were funded by the outdoor heritage fund, parks and trails fund, clean water fund, or arts and cultural heritage fund.

All entries were reviewed by a panel of judges which included staff from the DNR, Parks and Trails Council, Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Their recommendations were presented to DNR Commissioner Holsten who made the final selection.
