Our new official name is Children of Lincoln!
One of our first major tasks for this project was to find a name that best represented what we were trying to achieve with our children’s rights initiative for Lincoln. We recognised that we wanted children in Lincoln to play a major role in helping us to decide on the name. We therefore came up with five different names and asked children from a number of schools in Lincoln to rank them from 1 to 5, with 1 being their least favourite and 5 being their most favourite. The names we asked Lincoln children to rank included:
- Lincoln’s Children Matter
- Children Friendly Lincoln
- Lincoln for Children
- Creating Children Friendly Lincoln
- Lincoln City of Children
While Lincoln For Children emerged as a key favourite, one group of children decided they didn’t like any of these names. They suggested a different name instead. Following a new round of consultation, this name proved to be the most popular. With thanks to children in Lincoln our project is now called:
Children of Lincoln
We now need a logo and are currently running a competition for children who attend schools in Lincoln. If you’d like to take part you can find out more here.
