Local students invited to submit Canada 150 logos

Released by Robert Pearsall, PA to MP Mark Strahl


ark Strahl, MP for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon is encouraging area post-secondary students over the age of 18 to take part in the Canada 150 Logo Design Contest.


“This is an opportunity for a young aspiring graphic designer to be part of Canadian history by designing a national logo that celebrates our country’s 150th birthday,” said Strahl.


The logo, a key element in the multi-year effort to bring Canadians together for our country’s ongoing celebration of 150 years of Confederation, should evoke feelings of pride, unity and celebration, and it should reflect Canada as a diverse nation with a rich past and a promising future.


In addition to the prestige and recognition of having his or her logo used as the Government of Canada’s brand for the 150th anniversary of Confederation, the winner will receive $5,000 and a display in one of Canada's national institutions.


A judging committee made up of community leaders and representatives from the arts, heritage and educational sectors will develop a shortlist of qualified entries for final consideration. Submissions for the Canada 150 Logo Design Contest will be accepted from December 5, 2014, to January 23, 2015.
