Picked out from an impressive 400 entries - created by local primary school children across Jersey - the 10 year old’s design was chosen by a panel of judges looking for eye-catching, thoughtful ideas.
Of the huge number of entries from children aged five to 11 years old, finalists included designs from:
- Harry Creed, De La Salle Primary School
- Kathryn Silcock, Grouville Primary School
- Eloise Pearce, FCJ Primary School
- Unnamed, St John’s Primary School
- Eden Whitman, Grouville Primary School
- Bella Wheelan, St Martin’s Primary School
- Rosie Bennett, Grouville Primary School
- Darcy Yates, FCJ Primary School
In addition, the judges awarded 24 other entries as runner ups.
“We’d like to applaud all of the children who took part in the competition. The display of artwork in our office is really incredible. There were so many great designs. We really struggled to pick the winner. However, Nina’s design stood out as it really encapsulates the emoji concept and focuses on reaching your goals, something we encourage through our work in the community, ” states Denny Lane, Co-Director and Founder of Future Finance.
Craig Dempster, also Co-Director and Founder of Future Finance, echoes Denny’s views: “It’s great to support a local school by contributing to the cost of improvements. The primary schools in Jersey are educating our future generation and helping them to achieve their dreams. We see a strong link with the Future Finance ethos: to help people take the steps they need to achieve their aspirations.”
For anyone wanting to view the artwork produced by the primary school pupils, please visit Future Finance’s office on Broad Street, where the designs will now remain on display until Wednesday 27th July.
