This summer we launched a competition for young people across Surrey to design a logo for our Ready, Set, Glow programme.
The competition saw people across Surrey getting creative to create a logo for the project and all the clubs that have completed their learning. Ready, Set, Glow caters to selected groups with disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and helps advocate inclusivity across both the impaired and mainstream game.
Our lucky winner was 10-year-old Mila, who plays for Metropolitan Police. Reviewed by a Surrey FA panel, it was decided that her logo resonated most with the programme and represented a diverse spectrum of players. Mila’s submission featured five footballers, with one wearing ear-defenders, and has since been incorporated into the final design.
Mila speaking on her inspiration, said:
“My inspiration was from my Mum, who is a PE teacher in a SEN school. She told me that autistic children can find noise too much and often wear ear defenders. I then imagined such a kid joining a football team so drew a picture of them all together.”
