Designs on success

Students in the Highlands and Islands with an eye for design have the chance to grab a prize – by producing a logo for Scotland’s National Food and Drink Conference.

The winning logo will be printed on shopping bags and promotional material for the March conference. And the winning student will receive £300 – with £100 each for two runners-up.

Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead said: “Scotland produces some of the world’s finest food and drink and the National Food and Drink Conference is a great opportunity to highlight what we have to offer.

“This competition is a great opportunity for young people in the Highlands and Islands to get involved in something which directly links food and learning. Food and health has such a central place in Health and Wellbeing within Curriculum for Excellence  - which takes a much wider approach across the whole school from three to 18 years. Through this competition, students nationwide will have the chance to showcase their creativity whilst helping us showcase our world class larder.”
