Bonus Challenge 1 –

Your first bonus challenge is to design a logo for this event, as even though Network tried with this one, it’s a little boring (ssshhh don’t tell them we don’t want to hurt their feelings).

Keep sending us your best designs at, they need to be bright and colourful and say the words “The Great West Oxfordshire Challenge 2020” everything else is up to you!

Make sure you tell us your name and which group you are from in the email!

There will be certificates for the top 3 designs in each section and the overall winning design will be used on all certificates at the end of the challenge.

Go get creative and have some fun!!!

Your third challenge is to brighten someone’s day! Find a large pebble and paint it. You can paint anything you want on it or write a message that will make someone happy.
