Thanks to the incredible artistic talents of two Forest Hills high school students, FHPS Media has a new logo! Recent Eastern grad Kailey D and current Central high school student Christine R took our challenge and turned it into something special.

Last year, when we unveiled our new website, this was our logo:


We decided that we wanted something new and original, so we approached our high school art classes with an idea. The student who could come up with the best new logo design for FHPS Media would see their creation on our website. As if that wasn’t enough, we also offered a small monetary prize.

We were looking for a fresh design that melded traditional with 21st century learning. We had several excellent entries from our three high schools, but were particularly impressed with the works of Kailey and Christine. In fact, we liked them both so much that we asked them to work together to combine their logos.

Fortunately for us, they agreed, and their collaborative efforts resulted in our brand new FHPS Media logo. You can find it on our website as well as on our social media sites.


Thanks Kailey and Christine!
