Tennessee has a new state logo, created by a ten-year-old boy named Sparky, who was paid $46,000 for the commissioned work which will be used on future signs and letterheads.

The new logo has earned unanimous praise from Tennessee residents and lawmakers, who have deemed it to be well worth the $46,000 in taxpayer dollars.

“It’s exquisite,” said Chattanooga designer Myron Finchley. “I’ve never seen a logo so strongly iconic, simple yet sophisticated, since the passing of Paul Rand and Walter Landor.”

“I had no doubt Sparky would go far,” said Cindy Maywood, Sparky’s former kindergarten teacher. “He was a natural artist and the best fingerpainter in the class.”

Sparky could not be reached for comment and was reportedly going on a Nerf shopping spree at Toys “R” Us.
