Healthier LaSalle County Logo Contest


 Healthier LaSalle County Logo Contest

Opportunity for 9-12th Grade Students


Healthier LaSalle County is a new collaborative county effort with representation from a variety of health and social service organizations who have come together to implement and promote activities to help improve the health and wellness of LaSalle County. Healthier LaSalle County currently focuses on three priority areas:

  • Healthy Behaviors (Activity and Nutrition/Health Eating)
  • Behavioral Health (Mental Health and Substance Use)
  • Healthy Aging

 Healthier LaSalle County wants to encourage our citizens to take steps, big or small, to live healthier. Healthier LaSalle County wants to create awareness of activities in our area that are available to help us find balance in our everyday lives – physically, mentally, and socially.

 We make hundreds of decisions every day, and we make most of them without thinking. Small steps pave the way for change:

 Park further away and walk a few extra steps to your destination.
Eat one extra fruit or vegetable a day.
Join a support group.
Take a 10-minute walk.
 Learn to read food labels.
Breathe deeply.
 Get enough sleep.
 Take time to relax.

Healthier LaSalle County is looking for a logo that will identify the committee and their priority areas. The new logo may be used on the Healthier LaSalle County webpage, social media sites, business cards, letterhead, posters, promotional items, or anywhere else Healthier LaSalle County chooses.
