Boat show flag competition

15 February 2012

Jersey Marinas has launched an art competition among Jersey’s primary schools to find a winning design for the 2012 Barclays Wealth Jersey Boat Show flag.

The winning design will be made into the official flag for the 3-day show, which takes place in and around St Helier Marina over the Bank Holiday weekend of Saturday 5 to Monday 7 May 2012.

As well as receiving a prize voucher, the winning student will also hoist the flag during the opening ceremony on Saturday 5 May. The flag will fly in the arena throughout the weekend. In addition, the winner’s school or activity club will also receive a prize.

Group Commercial Director for Ports of Jersey, Myra Shacklady, said: “The Boat Show is a community event appealing to all ages and we thought this was a great way to involve local youngsters. The judging panel was very impressed with last year’s entries and chose a great design. I am sure this year’s pictures will be equally impressive."

The art competition, now in its second year, is open to all Jersey primary school children up to and including 11 years of age. The picture, which must have a maritime theme, should be drawn on A3 paper (landscape), using materials such as paint, colour pens, pencils or crayons. The closing date for the competition is Monday 16 April 2012.
