Health pro­gram gets over­haul

Pilbara News - - News - ■ Tom Zaun­mayr

Act Be­long Com­mit’s logo and slo­gan have un­der­gone a Roe­bourne-themed makeover in a move aimed at reach­ing out to the Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­nity in the re­gion.

The men­tal health cam­paign’s Roe­bourne-based op­er­a­tion held a com­pe­ti­tion ear­lier this month to come up with an iden­tity which was dis­tinctly lo­cal for the so­cial and well­be­ing pro­gram.

Roe­bourne Abo­rig­i­nal pro­ject man­ager Lesley Mur­ray said the panel of judges had a tough time se­lect­ing win­ners out of 37 en­tries across seven cat­e­gories. “The idea was to en­gage the lo­cal com­mu­nity in cre­at­ing a logo that was lo­cally and cul­tur­ally rel­e­vant,” she said.

Emily Sandy and Bianca and Pe­ne­sha Wally won the best adul­tadapted logo.

Ciara Cop­pin, Sho-ella Smith, Richard Togo and Justina Wil­lis were also among the win­ners.

Ms Mur­ray said the team would now work to de­velop a fi­nal logo de­sign based on the win­ning en­tries.

About 80 peo­ple at­tended the event at the CSSU Gurlu Gurlu Maya in Roe­bourne.
