Jessie’s joy as her Ex­plor­ers logo is winner

The Galloway News - - SCHOOL NEWS -

A Cas­tle Dou­glas High School pupil won a com­pe­ti­tion to de­sign a logo for the Bio­sphere Ex­plor­ers.

The project is run by the Crich­ton Carbon Cen­tre to ed­u­cate chil­dren and young peo­ple about the Gal­loway and Southern Ayr­shire Bio­sphere.

Schools in the Glenkens were in­vited to take part and more than 40 lo­gos were sub­mit­ted, with Jessie Black’s cho­sen as the win­ning de­sign.

She was pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate on Lamb Is­land at Th­reave as part of a Bio­sphere Ex­plor­ers na­ture walk. Lo­cal busi­nesses donated to­wards the school prize, which is an in­for­ma­tion board for the school wood­land.

Bio­sphere Ex­plor­ers project of­fi­cer Shalla Gray, said: “We needed a colour­ful and eye-catch­ing logo and the judges were unan­i­mous in se­lect­ing the win­ning de­sign by Jessie.

“It is vi­tally im­por­tant that chil­dren and young peo­ple are made aware of our glo­ri­ous bio­sphere, a UNESCO des­ig­na­tion made in recog­ni­tion of Gal­loway and Southern Ayr­shire’s com­mit­ment to pro­tect­ing our nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and to us­ing our re­sources in a sus­tain­able way. Jessie’s won­der­ful logo will re­ally help in pro­mot­ing the project.”
