The School Enterprise Challenge team would like to congratulate and thank everyone who participated in this year’s Logo Design Mini-competition! The quality of submissions and enthusiasm shown by students has been astounding and everyone involved should be really proud of their efforts. We received over 150 incredibly varied and fantastic submissions – more than ever before! Picking the winners was not an easy task for our judges but in the end the 12 winners reflect the range of businesses, countries and students that participate in the School Enterprise Challenge.

We hope that participating in the Logo Design Mini-competition has demonstrated the importance and benefit of a logo to any business, no matter sector or location. A logo is an easily recognisable and memorable image that embodies the values and identity of your enterprise. By participating in this mini-competition you will have gained experience in design as well as marketing, and through the public vote seen the value of social media.

Before we announce the winners we would like to give a special mention to these schools who came up with innovative and exciting ways of participating in the mini-competition.
