The Bermuda Road Safety Council has launched a competition for the design of its new logo.

A spokesman said: “The BRSC is looking to freshen up and also to localise its logo, to make it feel more Bermudian.

“Recently we have chosen a mascot, a turtle, to be the face of road safety.

“We would like to see the new mascot incorporated in the logo.”

He added: “Everyone in Bermuda is connected in one way — we all use the roads of Bermuda and we want our roads to be safer for everyone on them.

“In this we want the logo to look and feel Bermudian, so that each one of us can feel proud when we see it.”

The competition is open to students from ages 11 and up (M1 to college level). College students must send a copy of their college ID.

Submissions should be sent to by September 14.

Shortlisted entries will be put to a public vote, with the winner announced on September 25.
