Young Skye artists are being urged to make their mark and maybe win a cash prize.

The Highland Child Protection Committee (CPC) is a group of people who work together to try and make sure that every child in Highland is safe. This includes the Police, Social Work, Health and Education along with partners who work in our local communities.

Now they are looking for a new logo that helps people understand what the Child Protection Committee does and have set out to find a new logo which they wanted designed by a young person and that other young people would relate to. The winning entry will receive a £50 voucher and a prize for their school or youth group.

Who can enter?
Anyone under 18 living in Highland can enter the competition and entries will be considered in each of the following age groups:
• 8 and under
• 9-14 years
• 15-18 years

The overall winner will be decided by a panel and will receive a £50 voucher and a prize for their school or youth group. The two Runners up will receive a £25 gift voucher.

Now for the rules……

The logo should be simple and easy to reproduce, and reflect the key aims of the Committee.
• Must have the words Highland Child Protection Committee in it
• You can use up to 4 colours
• 1 entry per person maximum
• Only entries received on or before 17th February 2017 will be considered
