Winners of Laudato Si Logo Competition Announced!Monday 26th April 2021
Following hundreds of incredible entries to our logo competition for the Laudato Si Centre, we are happy to announce that Max from St Mary Magdalene RC Primary School, Burnley, is our winner.
Elements of Max’s drawing will form the basis of our Laudato Si Centre logo, which will be digitally transformed.
Sebastien from St Charles RC Primary School, Swinton and Abigail from Barlow RC High School, Manchester were both highly commended for their entries.
Entrants were asked to draw something that represented what the Laudato Si Centre meant to them. We received more than 500 amazing entries to the competition, from children and young people all around our diocese.
The Laudato Si Centre is an exciting new project at Wardley Hall which aims to make the Diocese of Salford a flagship for effective action on climate change.
The centre was announced by Bishop John in Lent 2019 in response to the current climate crisis and Pope Francis’s call for us all to care for our common home in his document Laudato Si, which the centre is named after.
It is an ambitious project which will take about 3-5 years to be fully realised, but it is hoped that the Centre will create a space for all to learn how they can take practical action to tackle climate change and will help to work towards a sustainable world for future generations.
Bishop John said: “We received more than 500 entries to our logo competition for the Laudato Si Centre and we were very impressed by the efforts of all those who entered. Clearly everyone had given a lot of thought to their designs and should be proud of what they have achieved.
“Congratulations to Max, Abigail and Sebastien for their winning entries. I would encourage all of those who entered to carry on thinking about the environment and considering the impact of our actions on our common home.”
We would like to thank everybody for their efforts and the time put into your wonderful entries, and send a huge congratulations to our winners.
