A big congratulations to Jacob and all the young people who took part in a design challenge!
Teens across Cumbria have been flying the flag for creative careers, with the county’s Year 9s challenged to put their creative talents to good use and come up with a colourful ‘Our Future’ campaign logo, to be used by our Careers Hub service.
Over 150 entries were judged by Marick Communications, an expert graphic design agency who set the brief. Jacob Murray – a pupil at Appleby Grammar School – was crowned the winner. His triumphant design features the blues and greens of the Cumbrian flag inside the shape of the county boundary!
The young sportsman, a black belt in Taekwondo, scooped £100 vouchers for JD Sports, as well £500 for his school to support a careers-based school trip next year.
Jacob’s champion design will now be used on leaflets, posters and in lessons across Cumbria to show how activities in schools relate to careers. Runners-up attended both Appleby Grammar and Queen Elizabeth School in Kirby Lonsdale.
