JOTA-JOTI Logo Contest 2012
The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) announces the launch of 'JOTA-JOTI Logo Contest 2012'. This contest is to design the Logo of 2012's edition of the Jamboree-On-The-Air - Jamboree-On-The-Internet (JOTA-JOTI). The theme for this year is " How Big is Your World?".
The winning entry will become the official logo of JOTA-JOTI 2012. This logo will also be used by the World Scout Shop to design the official badge that will be worn by Scouts taking part in the 55th JOTA and 16th JOTI (20-21 October 2012) around the world.
The theme this year was conceived in connection with the United Nations (UN) International Year of Cooperatives (2012). The idea is to encourage Scouts to explore how one's small actions at a local level could have a huge impact at the global level.
Through this theme, WOSM invites all Scout Groups who will take part in JOTA-JOTI 2012 to imagine; develop; and implement actions, to mesure and promote the impact of Scouting in the society.
'How Big is Your World' will also invite Scouts to consider being part of WOSM's flagship initiative, the Messengers of Peace (MoP). Every Scout can start making a difference in their community being part of the MoP Network.
Finally, this theme is also an invitation to Scouts, to reflect on how they can enlarge their own world by interacting with others, using modern methods of communication. The message to Scouts is, "Let other Scout friends from around the globe step into your world by sharing your thinking, feeling, emotions, ideas, proposals and projects with them. Share your life experiences to enlarge your world...."
