Design logo for national contest

SCHOOLCHILDREN and students are invited to submit what they think should be the logo for Scotland’s National Food and Drink Conference next year.

The winning design will be printed on shopping bags and promotional material for the March conference. And the winning student will receive £300 – with £100 each for two runners-up.

Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead said: “This competition is a great opportunity for young people in the Borders to get involved in something which directly links food and learning. Through this competition, students nationwide will have the chance to showcase their creativity whilst helping us showcase our world class larder.”

The competition is open to anyone studying part or full-time at any school, college or university in Scotland and the closing date is February 10.
