Schools within Cumbria Education Trust and The Cumberland Building Society worked collaboratively on a competition to create a new logo design for The Cumberland Building Society’s Young Savers Account during My Money Week, which is run by Young Enterprise. The winners were announced during the end of term.
650 entries were received with designs ranging from Lakeside views to Cumberland sausages! The Cumberland Building Society were really impressed with the creativity and the standard of entries and appreciated how much our students and pupils had cared about their designs.
The designs from each school will be on displayed in the local branches and the Branch Managers came in to each school to present the prizes to the winners. The winning designers were presented with a promotional leaflet featuring their design, as well as receiving a £100 Junior ISA.
Longtown Primary School Winner: Charlie Armstrong (Year 3) – Pumba the Pig
Judges’ Comments: Charlie’s design is striking and shows a whole range of images linked to Cumbria including the rain clouds.
Yewdale Primary School Winner: Sonny Dover (Year 3) – Lakes
Judges’ Comments: The textures of the different colour segments of the design really stand out to give the image a 3D effect.
Workington Academy Winner: Jade Burns (Year 7) – River
Judges’ Comments: This images shows the image many people associate with Cumbria of Lakes and Mountains and the design has been well thought out separating the images into three specific areas of lakes, mountains and sky.
William Howard School Winner: Leah Acton (Year 7) – Tip
Judges’ Comments: The design at first looks like coins in a money bank but on a closer look you can see they are sheep, the logo of the Cumberland is incorporated in the design and there is a fun splash of colour to indicate a children’s account.
The overall winner was Leah Acton from William Howard School as the Building Society felt that her design would work particularly well on their piggy banks. She drew the sheep to resemble coins, which fitted with the competition theme very well. Leah received an additional £250 Junior ISA prize from Barry Ridley the local Branch Manager during an awards assembly in school.
