Earth Week logo contest

In celebration of Earth Week 2008 the National Trust for the Cayman Islands is holding its annual Earth Week logo and T-shirt design competition.

Year 10 to 12 students are invited to enter the competition and help design the Earth Week 2008 logo.

The grand prize is a day-trip for two to Little Cayman with a National Trust guide. The lucky winner and a friend will participate in activities such as kayaking and exploring and will be introduced to Little Cayman Rock Iguanas, Red-footed Boobies and other wildlife that makes Little Cayman unique. Lunch is also included and there will be prizes for second and third place.

Entries should reflect this year’s theme in celebration of the International Year of the Reef – Advocate healthy oceans, protect Cayman’s marine life. The logo will be used in promotional materials for Earth Week and other events and will be used as the design for the Earth Week 2008 T-shirt. The T-shirt design will be limited to three or four colours, so please keep this in mind when preparing your design.

Entries must be submitted by 5pm Monday, 22 February.

Submit designs to the National Trust Office in the Dart Park on South Church Street. Designs may also be emailed to [email protected]. Call 949-0121 for more information.

The maximum size for the logo/shirt design is eight inches wide by 11 inches tall. Include a daytime phone number and email address with submissions. The winning design will be selected by public vote through a display on the National Trust website from 22 February to 10 March. The winner will be notified on or after 11 March. Visit to vote.
