Improving the condition of people’s homes
Posted on 29th September, 2017 by Lincoln Against Poverty
The School of Social & Political Sciences at the University of Lincoln have been working with City of Lincoln Council and Lincolnshire County Council since 2016 to launch a child rights initiative for the city of Lincoln. The aspiration of the Children of Lincoln Steering Group is for Lincoln to be recognised by Unicef as a ‘Child Friendly City’ alongside a number of other cities in the UK. The group’s aim is to raise awareness of children’s rights in Lincoln, by holding events for children and families, conducting research and eventually seeking recognition as a Unicef Child Friendly City.
In early September Lincoln school children helped to choose a name for the project. The project team is now urging local children and young people to enter the ‘Children of Lincoln project logo competition!’ to help design a logo for the project.
The logo designs will be judged by the project team using the following criteria:
Submissions are welcomed by both individuals and family groups.
As well as winning a prize, the winning logo will be featured on all project related materials. The official launch of the project name and logo will take place on Saturday 4th November 2017 at the University of Lincoln. The project team will be holding a fun day of activities to celebrate, and share information about the project. Everyone is invited!
Please click here to download the logo competition advert. Please note that the entry form should be printed off in A4 size and the logo should fit within the 10cm x 10 cm square provided.
The deadline for competition entries is Friday 13th October 2017.
