A student of St Brigid’s Primary School in Moate has been announced as the winner of the ‘Design a Logo for Moate’ competition.

Eleven-year-old Ella Power’s design was selected as the ultimate winner of the contest, organised by Moate Action Group, and will become the official symbol for the town. The logo will be presented for the first time at the forthcoming official opening of the new library in Moate.

The idea of creating a symbol for Moate was the brainchild of Moate Action Group (MAG ), with the aim of boosting and promoting Moate as a great place to live, work, and visit. It is hoped that local businesses, organisations, and clubs will adopt it in order to visually unify the town.

“The judges were looking for an innovative and exciting idea. We encouraged the students to design using any medium they felt comfortable with including pencil, crayons, or digital. From that original piece of art, we developed the final professionally produced graphic,” said Darren Doyle of Studio 93.

More than 100 entries were received for the competition from St Brigid’s Primary School and St Oliver Plunkett Boys National School. A judging panel of professional graphic designers and Moate Action Group members chose the winning design.

Ella received the prize of an iPad Mini sponsored by Tuar Ard Arts Centre, Studio93, and Moate Action Group.
