The official site of the Western Dakota Association

The Western Dakota Association (WDA) created a logo which could be easily recognizable and illustrate characteristics of the long-standing North Dakota high school conference.

The connecting W-D-A letters represent the strong bond the conference members have shared for eight decades of competition.

The 11 stars within the three-dimensional 'A' lettering represent the 11 full members. The first band of five stars signify the five charter members (Bismarck High, Dickinson, Mandan, Minot High and WIlliston). The second band of six stars are for the additional members (Bismarck Century, Jamestown, Bismarck St. Mary's, TMCHS Belcourt, Bismarck Legacy and Watford City). Beginning in 2024, Minot North will become a full member of the conference. It currently serves as an associate member for varsity sports.

The WDA leadership felt it important to create the WDA brand to distinguish itself. The logo has been displayed on team and postseason banners and apparel as well as on the official website. In the future, the logo will become more prominent within each school and displayed in school colors. In addition, a secondary logo (below) was created to further enhance the conference image and brand.

The WDA logo is property of the conference and its member schools and is registered with the ND Secretary of State. Any unauthorized use is strictly prohibited. For logo use requests, or more information, contact the WDA director of sports information at or by calling: (701-776-5836)
