Sustainability logo design competition for Northumberland schools

Schools across the county are being encouraged to create a new logo for the Northumberland Schools Sustainability Network (NSSN). 
The local network has been set up by Northumberland County Council in partnership with the UK Schools Sustainability Network (UKSSN) and provides staff and students with a platform for sharing ideas and resources, as well as facilitating collaboration and participation in local and national climate action initiatives. 
As part of Great Big Green Week, First, High, Middle, Primary, Secondary and Special schools are invited to take part in creating an iconic logo which will incorporate the essence of the network and give it a unique identity. 
Schools are being asked to think about what sustainability means to them and the actions we should be taking on climate change in Northumberland. 
£250 is up for grabs, which will be awarded to the winning school to spend on an environmental or sustainability project. 
Glen Sanderson, Leader at Northumberland County Council and Cabinet Member for climate change said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for schools to get creative, collaborate and learn more about the climate issues facing Northumberland.
“I would actively encourage all schools to get involved and demonstrate their amazing work. Climate change is an important aspect of our modern lives, and we all have a part to play in driving Northumberland towards becoming carbon neutral. 
I’m really looking forward to seeing all the wonderful designs from across the county.” 
All schools are being encouraged to download the template from and submit one design per school by Friday 21 July by scanning and emailing a copy to  
Then a panel will select the best design which will be sent to a professional designer and made into the official badge for the NSSN. The climate team will then be in touch with the winners to arrange the award.  
Northumberland County Council has lots of ideas for schools to get involved in the Great Big Green Week. Find out more at
