BOYNE Island State school (BISS) will kick start the new year with a fresh look to its school logo.
But the school needs the general public to help them.
BISS acting prinicpal Michael Hurst said the school was asking the public to use their creative talent and create a new logo for the school.
'The current logo was cre-ated over 25 years ago, and was defined by the location of the school,' he said.
'Basically the kids were encouraged to design a logo that gives the definition for life-long learning, rather than our location.'
He said although the school might not use the logo, it would start a foundation of ideas.
'But that's not to say we won't use one of them,' he said.
Mr Hurst said the school was also in the process of getting a new uniform.
'The new logo will be included on our new uniform,' he said. He said this was an opportunity not only for the school community, but also the general public.
'There is $250 up for grabs for the winning entry and $325 in total prize money,' he said.
Entry forms for the competition can be picked up from Gladstone Cinemas, Boyne Tannum Community Centre, Boyne Island State School or by logging on to www.boynislass.eq.edu.au.
