DeKalb County announces Mascot Naming Contest
DeKalb County announces Mascot Naming Contest


DECATUR – DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis invites local middle school students to name the DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management’s new mascot. The new mascot is a male mallard duck and is native to the State of Georgia. The duck also emphasizes the importance of protecting our water resources.

Interested middle school students can go online, with parents’ permission, to www.dekalbwatershed.com and click below the picture of the duck to submit a name for the mascot. Entries must be submitted by noon on Monday, Nov. 14. A judging panel will then select the five best names and place them on the Department of Watershed Management’s website for online voting. Online voting will begin Friday, Nov.18 and end Monday, Nov. 28.

The mascot will attend DeKalb County sponsored events, school activities and public meetings.
