Jessie’s joy as her Explorers logo is winner
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.”
