LAKELAND – The artwork and digital designs of two Lakeland Catholic students will be featured on the blue shirts worn across the Lakeland Catholic School division (LCSD) in celebration of Catholic Education Week from May 23-27.
Near the beginning of the school year, the Lakeland Catholic Alberta Teachers’ Association Local #30 challenged students to design logos that would represent Catholic Education Week.
Jeanna Ignacio, a Grade 6 student from Holy Cross Elementary School in Cold Lake, was selected as the winner of the K-6 grade category.
Paige Parker, a Grade 10 student at Assumption Jr/Sr High School in Cold Lake, took the top spot in the Grade 7-12 group.
Each logo will be featured on the blue shirts worn across the school division on May 26 as part of Catholic Education Week.
“I am really proud of myself,” said Ignacio. She added that she had taken her time creating the design and put a lot of effort into it.
Parker, who created her design digitally, said her design was inspired by the colour blue for Catholic Education. The book featured in her logo represents students’ continuous learning in subjects such as math, science, and religion.
To be eligible for the design contest, logos had to encompass the importance of faith within Lakeland Catholic Schools and the greater community, according to LCSD.
“I was surprised to win,” said Parker, adding she is considering a career that involves computer-based work, possibly in graphic design.
While all students are encouraged to wear blue for Catholic Education Week, LCSD staff members will be specifically wearing one of the two student designed t-shirts on May 26.
