Call for young artists as charity launches logo competition

A new charity is on the hunt for budding artists to use their creative flair to design a new logo.

Inclusive Orkney is launching a competition — open to all primary and secondary-aged children — to make a new logo, and play an important role in bringing a fresh new charity to the minds of the Orkney public.

As an added incentive, the lucky winner will also receive a prize from Grooves.

Inclusive Orkney has the overarching aim to support children with additional needs and their families.

Chairwoman Karin Spence — an additional support teacher at Glaitness School — says the group started when she, and a parent of a child with additional support needs, and fellow primary teacher Caroline Heddle, started talking about the need for outside school activities for children with additional support needs.

Mrs Spence said: “As we are a new charity we do not as of yet have a logo, and we were hoping that we could call upon the talents of local folk to help us with this.

“The competition is open to all primary and secondary-aged children.

“The winner of the chosen design, which will be picked by members of the Inclusive Orkney charity, will be invited along to our official launch night to see their logo design on a banner and receive a fabulous prize from Grooves.

“We would really like our logo to fully encapsulate what Inclusive Orkney is all about.”

Logo entries should be created on one sheet of A4 paper, with your name and phone number clearly written on the back, then submitted to Glaitness Primary School in Kirkwall, FAO Karin Spence no later than Friday, October 22.
