PCC's youth engagement logo competition winners announced
The winners of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s youth engagement logo competition have been announced!
The competition was launched back in May by Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
The competition was open to 7-21 year olds who could draw, paint or sketch their logo.
The entries were initially scored by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the final winners were decided by the PCC’s Youth Advisory Group (YAG).
The YAG decided on one winner from the younger category (7 – 12), one winner from the older category (13 – 21). The winning logos will be featured on the PCCs website and the designers will be receiving online shopping vouchers. (£50 per winner).
The winners are:
- 7-12 years – Lexie Tordoff
- 13-21 years – Tyler Scaife
The successful logo designers will now see their work merged together along with other entries to become the centrepiece for the PCC’s Youth Advisory Group and used in schools, youth centres and police stations across the county, as well as through the PCCs website and social media platforms.
Once the new logo has been created it will replace the original logo used since the group’s creation six years ago that was designed by school students.
Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) congratulated the winners and said: “I knew when I launched this competition that it was going to be really difficult to choose a winner and it certainly was!
“I was incredibly impressed with the designs that were sent in and the thought, time and effort that had gone into creating them. A big, big thank you to everyone that took the time to enter the competition it’s been a pleasure to see them all and a really positive process for all involved.”
“Congratulations to Lexie and Tyler for their winning designs and the prize awarded, as well as the contribution made to our youth engagement which has been really enjoyable.”
The YAG speak and engage directly with the PCC and West Yorkshire Police to ensure that young peoples’ views on policing and community safety are regularly heard and taken on board. To date they have helped with the Police and Crime Plan, important consultations and advised on numerous policies and campaigns.
It is made up of over 30 members aged between 13 and 21 and was created by the PCC’s office in 2014 to raise the profile of young people within the wider community, and to ensure their voice is heard and views listened to. Collectively, members act as a strong voice for young people when communicating with the PCC and other partners.
