Storm Water Logo Design Contest

The Utilities Department is conducting a contest to create a logo for its storm water program. As a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), the University has developed a multi-faceted program to ensure that storm water run-off from the Notre Dame campus does not pollute local receiving waters. As part of this program, the University aims to educate its students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors on the issues surrounding storm water pollution and the steps Notre Dame takes to positively impact our water resources. In order to connect with more of its constituents, the Utilities Department is looking to expand its storm water educational reach into social media outlets. A logo is needed to accompany this effort; one that integrates storm water with our Notre Dame identity, as well as our commitment to protect our natural water resources.

The logo contest is open to current Notre Dame students, faculty and staff. Interested participants should submit their entry via e-mail to Chip Farrell, Sr. Environmental and Safety Specialist ( by April 25th 5:00 p.m. The contest entry should be a high resolution PDF (include contact information in body of email). The finalists will be asked to submit their artwork in .eps/In Design high resolution format and should be prepared to allow the University to retain rights to the artwork. The contest winner will be chosen no later than May 2nd by representatives from the Utilities Department and the Office of Sustainability and will be awarded a $100 Visa Prepaid card. If you have any questions, please contact Chip Farrell at 631-9826 or
