Design a Totem for Riverside Park Glenrothes winners
As part of the recent participatory budgetting project "UR Park U Decide" a competition was held with the local Glenrothes Area Primary Schools to create a design for Totem Poles in Riverside Park.
The themes were
Celebrate the Diamond Jubilee;
2012 Olympics and the
100th year commemoration of Titanic Disaster.
The interest and artistic talent of the children of Glenrothes were given full reign and over 600 entries were received. The task that faced the judging panel was immense but it was finally narrowed down to six entries (two in each category).
Thursday 11th August saw the winners gathered together at St. Paul RC Primary School and presented with the first part of their prize (an artists palette) by Lindsay Roy, MP. They and their families were then invited to stay at the school and be part of the event and displays shown to the Beautiful Scotland judges after they had their tour of Glenrothes. The judges were very impressed with both the winning posters and their conversations with the winners.
The second part of their winning prize is to be involved in painting the Totems when they are sited at places of interest in the Park. A marker panel will also be erected and the winners names will be add to other information about the Totem.
