PROSPECTIVE pupils for the new Route 39 Academy set to open in September have been invited to design a logo for their new North Devon secondary school.

The competition is open to children aged 12 and under, with a Chromebook laptop worth £230 as first prize.

The logo will be used in all aspects of the new school, earmarked for a site somewhere near the Bucks Cross area, from website and stationery to uniforms and signs.

The public will be invited to vote for their favourite and there will be an exhibition of all entries at the Route 39 Academy office in Atlantic Village, Bideford, from Monday February 25 - Saturday March 2.

The design could use the name ‘Route 39 Academy’, or the school ethos of ‘Engage, Respect, Aspire’, or it could be image that represents the school. Multiple entries are allowed.
