Five young Cockburn locals will have their T-Shirt designs printed after they were named winners of the City’s ‘Design a T-Shirt’ competition for National Volunteer Week 2020.
The competition challenged participants to design a T-Shirt for the City’s mascot Volunteer Ted to wear out in the community to promote volunteering. Children and young people aged 5-17 years old were eligible to enter.
The competition emerged as an idea from the City’s Volunteer Resource Centre as a way to keep children active during the COVID-19 lockdown.
The five winners were chosen from 59 entries. These included collaborative efforts from local primary school classes such as East Hamilton Hill Primary, Spearwood Primary and South Lake Primary.
The winning designs have been printed onto shirts for Volunteer Ted. Each winner also received a T-Shirt featuring their design and a voucher as a prize.
City of Cockburn Mayor, Logan Howlett thanked all of the participants and congratulated the winners.
“Well done to all of our brilliant designers. This competition shows the kind of talent, creativity and passion that make volunteers in all capacities so important to the City,” said Mayor Howlett.
“I’d also like to thank each of our winners on behalf of Volunteer Ted, I know he is looking forward to wearing his new T-Shirts around the City.”
The five winners were:
- Sam Senesi – aged five years old (class entry from East Hamilton Hill Primary, Teacher Rebekah Rowcliffe)
- Bhanusree Pasupuleti – aged 12 years old
- Ellah Mia Cenzia – aged 10 years old
- Isabel Duncan – aged 9 years old
- Dakota Demarte – aged 12 years old
