The Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner’s Office has launched a competition inviting young people across Surrey to submit their designs for the Office’s new logo.
The winner of the three-week competition will be offered the opportunity to then work alongside a leading Surrey design agency to bring their idea to life and will receive an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil to support their future journey in design.
The competition is part of the rebrand of the Commissioner’s Office this spring and follows the commitment of Commissioner Lisa Townsend and Deputy Commissioner Ellie Vesey-Thompson to encourage more opportunities for children and young people in Surrey.
A Competition Pack including more information on how to get involved is available here.
Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Ellie Vesey-Thompson, who is leading the Office’s focus on children and young people, said: “Myself and the team are really excited to see the valuable contribution that young people in Surrey will bring to this project as we develop our new visual identity.
“Ahead of the publication of the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan in December, we heard from residents, including young people, who said they wanted us to engage better and more widely.
“The competition will offer a fantastic opportunity for one of the brilliant young people in our county to develop highly valued skills in design, while extending our reach to young people whose voices we want to actively include in our plans for Surrey. It also forms a part of the commitment of the Office to strengthen how we communicate with all residents, specifically to grow more awareness of the role of the Commissioner, our partners and Surrey Police in representing their views and creating a safer county.”
The competition will close at midnight on Thursday, 31 March 2022. Entrants must be between the ages of 15 and 25 years old and live in Surrey to take part.
Organisations working with young people in Surrey are encouraged to promote the competition to their networks by downloading a Partner Pack.
