Beacon are proud of all of our Collective ed. communities and the great work that they are doing. Today, the George Town site, through their Future Impact Group (FIG) shared the exciting news announcing the winners of their community pride bumper sticker art competition. The competition invited community members to design seven themed bumper stickers celebrating the municipality. The competition themes were identified by the community from a series of face-to-face consultations and online surveys as elements the George Town and surrounding community is proud of.
The seven themes for the stickers include:
- “Love living in George Town Municipality”
- “Beach Lover of George Town Municipality”
- “Mountain Biker of George Town Municipality”
- “Walk, ride, run in George Town Municipality”
- “Blown away by George Town Municipality”
- “Wine lover of George Town Municipality”
- “Love fishing in George Town Municipality”
More than 200 entries were received and community members from 6 to 85 years of age entered the competition. The stickers will be handed out for free to locals as a way of bolster community pride to display on cars and in shop windows.
The competition is one of a series of initiatives by the Community Pride working group of the FIG – a group of dedicated community members focusing on understanding and building a sense of pride in George Town Municipality and part of the wider Collective ed. network.
