We recently launched a competition to find a design for our project logo. We wanted children to be involved in the process so we sent details of a competition to local schools in Lincoln. We asked for designs to be added to a 10×10 box and that they meet the following two criteria:
1. That they featured something recognisable from Lincoln
2. That they included something that represents childhood in Lincoln
We received some fantastic designs from children of all ages (all of which can be viewed here) but after much debate and discussion amongst the judging panel we eventually decided on our winner. The winning design was developed by Templar Marshall, age 11 who attends Our Lady of Lincoln Primary! He produced this beautiful image that really captures the joy of childhood in Lincoln:
Not only has Templar won himself an iPod Shuffle but his logo will also be digitised and used on all of our promotional materials and outputs! Well done Templar and watch this space for the new logo design!
Because the standard of entries was so high we also decided to name some runners up. These were Callie-Mai Hind (10), Caleb-Gerald Ward (7) and Elliot-James Lutton (4), siblings, from Ermine Primary. They produced the image below which really captured the spirit of our project, which is all about giving children a voice about their city and providing them a platform from which they can be heard. The family have won tickets to attend an Imps fixture of their choice – well done!!
All of the competition entries, including our new logo, will be showcased at our launch event on Saturday 4th November 2017. If you are in Lincoln, please pop down to the Isaac Newton Building on the University of Lincoln campus between 10am and 4pm to find out more about our work and to enjoy some crafts and activities! All families welcome!
