On January 15, 2011 the Division of Intellectual Disabilities Services officially transitioned to the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. In conjunction with the name change and new designation as a department, DIDD sponsored a contest to design a new logo. The contest, which closed January 5, 2011, was open to all Tennesseans with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The winning logo will be used in all capacities of the department's business including print and electronic applications.

Twenty-four entries were received from across the state of Tennessee, displaying the talent and creativity of our citizens. From these, DIDD selected the entries that best reflected the department’s philosophy, "All About People."

The winners are as follows:

  • 1st Place - Kathryn Ambrose
  • 2nd Place – Dalton Redwine
  • 3rd Place – Eleanor Wolfe
  • 4th Place – Wesley Baucum
  • 5th Place – James Woodard

Our winner, Kathryn Ambrose, 25, a lifelong artist only recently considered submitting art for contests and entered the DIDD Logo Contest on the advice of a family friend. Kathryn has been drawing since she was a young girl and prefers Faber-Castell pencils as her medium of choice but also uses colored pencils, pens and q-tips.

On her art, Kathryn writes, "My favorite thing about art is working on all the little details that go into a piece of art work that make it real and unique. My family has always been very supportive of my drawing and love to see everything I end up drawing."

We would like to thank everyone who submitted a logo for their participation and creativity.
