MANHATTAN -- One of Kansas State University's newest enterprises needs a new logo.

The energy and environment program is inviting K-State students to submit their designs for the logo the program will use.

"This logo will serve to establish the visual identity and recognition of the EEP throughout various media and on campus," said Casey Lauer, the program's director. "The best ideas come from our students, who play an instrumental role in energy conservation at K-State. Reaching and teaching are two goals for this program; the more that students get involved, the more that awareness is increased for energy conservation on this campus."

Aspiring designers should keep in mind that conservation is the underlying theme for the program. Its main objectives are to promote economic, environmental and ecological stewardship and the interactional benefit of all three working together.

Lauer said that creativity, originality, aesthetics, symbolism and use of space and color will all be used to measure the logo's merit. Entries that best represent and create a recognizable brand for the energy and environment program will be given additional consideration.

Proposed logos should include no more than four colors. They should be completely original and nonderivative. The submission requirements do not include a size constraint, but the logo should be appropriate for a variety of mediums, including Web content and promotional materials. Only submissions with JPG, PDF, BMP and DOC file extensions will be considered.

All current K-State students are eligible and encouraged to participate. The contest deadline is 11:59 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3. The designer of the winning entry will receive an Apple iPad.

Submissions can be e-mailed to with the subject line EEP Logo Contest, or mailed to Casey Lauer, Re: EEP Logo Contest, Kansas State University, 217A Dykstra Hall, Manhattan, KS, 66506-0903. Please include your name; contact information, including e-mail address; and a brief description of how the logo represents the energy and environment program.
