Logo Design Success For Dalbeattie High School Students

Two twelve year old students from Dalbeattie High School will be seeing their work displayed across the whole Solway Forests area of South West Scotland, after winning a logo design competition organised by Solway Forests Red Squirrel Network ( SFRSN ) .
Jack Wright and Troy Nir , from teacher Mrs Paterson’s S1 Skills Group, created a colourful and innovative design which was judged to be the best of several excellent entries. The winning design will be used on all the publications and promotional material for SFRSN, a recently formed group of volunteers working to boost the conservation of the local red squirrel population, which is increasingly under threat from the incursion of grey squirrels into the Solway Forests area.
The winners will receive gift vouchers to spend on a prize of their own
choice. These will be presented at Dalbeattie Learning Campus on Tuesday 19th June at 2 pm.
Jean Ennis, spokesperson for SFRSN, acknowledged the very high quality of competition entries and commented that :
It was extremely hard to pick a winner, but Jack and Troy’s design stood out ; and will greatly help in the creation of a strong identity for our new group, to thereby boost our ongoing publicity and fundraising programmes.
We are very grateful to Helen Paterson at Dalbeattie High School for encouraging her students to take part in the competition ; and also to Chris Staple, a graphic artist and red squirrel supporter from Somerset, who voluntarily prepared the logo for publishing. “
