Calling all Students: Develop our Toonies for Tuition Logo and Promotional Poster!


Toonies 180pxCCSTA Hosts Student Art Poster + Logo Contest

Are you a student who loves design? Are you an artist? A graphic designer?

Then we want to see your creations.

To help promote the CCSTA Toonies for Tuition initiative, we’re reaching out to young artists from across the country to get creative and design a Toonies for Tuition logo and poster that speaks to the cause.

Our Toonies for Tuition program is a fundraising initiative to raise funds for the CCSTA Charitable Foundation. This foundation provides funding to students from across Canada who have to pay tuition to attend a Catholic school. These bursaries help to cover the financial restraints of attending elementary or high school where Catholic education is only partially funded by the government or not at all.

And this funding happens thanks to Toonies for Tuition.

About the Contest

The contest is open to all students enrolled in a Catholic school in Canada and they can be in JK or Grade 12 and everything in between.

“We know that the best people to ask for help on the design are our students,” says CCSTA President Marino Gazzola. “We want the poster to be vibrant, bold and grab your attention. There are so many creative students in every single school, and we can’t wait to see what they develop.”

The winning designer can use it for their portfolio, and CCSTA will happily provide a referral letter for this contribution.

The contest will run from Dec. 1, 2017-Feb. 28, 2018 and the winner will be announced the end of March. The winner will receive a Best Buy gift card for $200. And if a class collaborates on the logo and poster design and wins, we will provide a $400 Best Buy gift card.
