More Diamond Jubilee Excitement

Buckingham Palace and the BBC’s Blue Peter programme has announced details of the official emblem chosen for Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The emblem is the winning design following a national competition for children aged between 6 and 14. The competition received almost 35,000 entries with youngsters competing in three age categories – six to eight-year-olds, nine to 11-year-olds and 12 to 14-year-olds. It was designed by 10-year-old Katherine Dewar, from Chester. Just imagine the pride and excitement young Katherine Dewar and her family and friends must be feeling, “I’m looking forward to seeing people waving flags with my design on to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.” Indeed. Congratulations Katherine, well done!
