When Taylor Electric Cooperative asked students to submit designs for a billboard contest, one entry stood out from all the others to win the grand prize.

Bailey Casady at Merkel Elementary School drew fellow fifth grader Logan Malone, who is fighting cancer, alongside the school’s mascot and “Badgers got your back.”

“This sweet student showed us that her love of her community comes in their support of the Malone family and Logan as they go through a tough cancer battle,” said Elizabeth McVey, Taylor EC public relations and communications manager. “It surprised the contest committee that a student so young would respond in such a way.”
