Community Foundation logo contest

The Revelstoke Community Foundation selected Mount Begbie Elementary school student Emma Otsig’s student-designed logo for their new ‘Environmental Fund’ to support environmental initiatives in the community.

Otsig’s design included the earth, raindrops and recycling symbols. It was chosen out of a field of more than 70 great entries in the contest from school children aged 13 and under.

Revelstoke Community Foundation chairman Steven Hui dropped by Sarah Newton’s Grade 4/5 class on April 20 to present Emma with the contest prizes, which included a $75 gift certificate, a game and Easter candy.

The Revelstoke Community Foundation is hosting their Annual ‘Celebration 2011’ on Thursday, April 28 at 7 p.m. at the Hillcrest Hotel. The event will include announcements of 2011 grant recipients, a review of the foundation’s activities, and guest speaker Leanne Hammond-Komori of the Central Okanagan Foundation.

 

RSVP Debra at the Revelstoke Community Foundation at 250-837-5345 if you plan to attend.
