Students awarded for designing creative logos on "Live Hygiene Live Health"


The Secretary for Education and Manpower, Professor Arthur K C Li, today (September 4) presented prizes to 15 students who made use of their creativity in logo design for the promotion of "Live Hygiene Live Health".

Speaking at the prize-giving ceremony of the Logo Design Competition on "Live Hygiene Live Health", the Principal Assistant Secretary for Education and Manpower, Dr Catherine Chan, said, "To build a clean new Hong Kong, the participation of schools is the key to success.

"The Logo Design Competition on 'Live Hygiene Live Health' was organised to raise students' awareness of a healthy lifestyle and civic responsibility. We are very pleased to see that the competition has received enthusiastic support from schools and students."

Speaking after viewing the award-winning logo exhibition, Professor Li said, "These entries can reflect the outstanding creative talent of Hong Kong children. I am very proud of them."

The logo design competition was held in June 2003. A total of 3,257 entries were submitted by 148 primary and secondary schools.

In realising the co-operation of different sectors, an adjudication panel was formed by representatives from the media, the business sector and the Parent-Teacher Association to select the best logo designs which were able to reflect the mission of "Live Hygiene Live Health".

A champion, a first runner-up, a second runner-up and five merit prizes were awarded to winners of the Primary School, Junior Secondary School and Senior Secondary School Groups. They were presented with book coupons, Certificates of Merit and trophies.
