We have a winner! The Columbia Valley Youth Network (CVYN) is happy to announce that Kate Hale is our winner of the logo contest. The contest ran from August until mid-October, asking for logos to be submitted at drop off locations around the Columbia Valley. The logo chosen will be used to brand the Youth Network and the initiatives and activities it undertakes. It was a tough decision to choose the winner, but we took into account the meaning behind the logo and the time and effort taken to create it.
“I used the First Nations medicine wheel colours to symbolize equality and everybody having a voice. I connected all the letters as a way of symbolizing the Network. I drew the Y as a person with their arms in the air to symbolize the energy of youth” shared Kate.
Pat Cope, Family Dynamix executive director, reports approval was given by both the Shuswap and Akisqunuk bands for use of their medicine wheel.
“We are honoured that both Aboriginal communities support the use of their medicine wheel as a part of the branding for the Columbia Valley Youth Network. Kate’s vision is truly a representation of the diversity of youth in our Valley and the scope of the initiatives of the Network,” said Ms. Cope.
Kate received a $100 gift card from Syndicate Board Shop for winning the contest. Also, CVYN extends a big thank you to Sarah Bennett from Origin Brand for offering her time to digitize the logo free of charge.
