OTTAWA, Feb. 26, 2003 – The Youth Tourism Consortium of Canada, a cooperative of Canadian tourism and transportation partners in cooperation with the Canadian Tourism Commission, is launching a contest for student artists in its search for a new youth travel logo for Canadian youth tourism.
“We are looking for a design that encompasses the pride of Canada and exuberance of youth,” said Michael Palmer, Executive Director, Student Youth Travel Association of North America. “The Youth Tourism Consortium and its partners will use the chosen logo in all promotional materials targeted toward youth travel.” Our message will be that Canada is the premier four-season destination to connect with nature and experience diverse cultures and communities.”
The deadline for entries is April 30, 2003. The winner will receive a $250.00 cash bursary, and over $1000.00 worth of travel prizes. Students enter the contest by submitting their design in a PDF file format to Cris Leonard of Greyhound Canada at firstname.lastname@example.org. Judges from the Youth Tourism Consortium will review all entries and select the winner in May 2003.
Judges include representatives from the Canadian Tourism Commission, Greyhound Canada, New Dimension/School Voyageur, Temple & Temple Tours, Tourcar, Trip Publications and Moose Travel Network.
