An eight-year-old girl surprised many when her logo design was selected by the Hela Provincial Health Authority (HPA) ahead of 24 other submissions.
Her ability to connect the traditional culture of Hela with modern health care themes has landed the Grade 4 student, Jasmine Armitage, a K500 cheque from a logo competition.
The Hela Provincial Health Authority ran a province-wide competition last year calling for designs that incorporate both health and Hela themes.
Jasmine was asked to explain the meaning of her logo to a large crowd gathered for the announcement and she received huge applause for her articulate and clear explanation.
Hela Provincial Health Authority’s Director Corporate Services, Elizabeth Boyd said it was wonderful to have many young people get involved, demonstrating an interest not only in health but also the future of Hela.
