St. CROIX FOUNDATION YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL HOLDS A CONTEST FOR YOUTH TO CREATE A LOGO AND SLOGAN FOR SOCIAL MEDIA PROJECT
The St. Croix Foundation Youth Advisory Council (YAC) wishes to invite all youth 20 years old and younger to submit a logo and/or a slogan for their developing web-based mentoring project. The submissions should reflect the following themes: matching youth with personal mentors, connecting youth globally, and exposing youth to resources for career development. The slogans must use five words or less, incorporate the themes above, and be PG rated. The logos must also be the original work of the youth submitting the design, be 8” X 10” in size and fit on a letter sized paper, and a shade of blue must be the predominant color.
Contestants can drop their original work off with their registration form at the St. Croix Foundation or email their work and registration form to email@example.com. All schools have already been provided with registration forms which can also be found on the St. Croix Foundation’s website at www.stxfoundation.org. The winners will be decided by December 31, 2012 and will be presented with a new iPad for their winning design.
YAC was created in 2009 as a local youth philanthropy group focused on identifying resources to meet the needs of youth in our community. They have successfully awarded grants to local youth focused programs and hosted a Youth Forum that provided youth a space to explore their talents, discuss their challenges and move beyond perceived limitations. Most recently, YAC polled over 900 middle and high school students on the island in their Answers for Change Survey. The results from the survey were the catalyst for this developing project. Currently, YAC is made up of 16 student members from middle and high schools on the island. For more information on the contest or YAC please email YAC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
