Local Sadie Webster loves a good logo.
Designer of the winning logo Sadie Webster.
The 93-year-old was the creative force behind the old Cowra Library bookworm logo and now Mrs Webster’s latest work will now help give an identity to the community organisation Miyan Munga.
Harry Williams, Danny Jeffries, Sadie Webster, Gwen Murray, Francis Kennedy and Carol Lockley.
Miyan Munga – which means caring for little ones – in partnership with Barnardos, provides foster and kin care services for Aboriginal children in Cowra, Bathurst and Orange.
The organisation ran a competition last year to develop a logo to signify what Miyan Munga is all about.
Mrs Webster’s winning entry – a baby in a coolamon, framed by a sun – was one of three hand-drawn logo designs she submitted.
The keen artist and previous Dr Warren Whiley Memorial Award recipient said she used every coloured pencil she owned to create the logo.
“I liked the other ones too but I still like the baby in the cradle better,” Mrs Webster said.
The great-grandmother plans to use her prize money to bring her large family together for a bit of a holiday.
“I’m shouting my family to come to Maroochydore to have a week together. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve got seven great grandchildren and they’ll get to know each other and be able to play volleyball on the beach and I’ve got a chair so I can sit up there and watch them,” Mrs Webster said.
Miyan Munga chair Danny Jeffries said Mrs Webster’s design encapsulated the service Miyan Munga provides to the community.
“What [Mrs Webster] did symbolises what we stand for,” Mr Jeffries said.
Second prize in the logo competition went to David Newton, while third prize was awarded to Kyah Dawn Johnstone of Cowra Public School.
Miyan Munga and Barnardos are seeking short-term Aboriginal foster carers in the area. If you believe you can provide a home for Aboriginal children who are unable to live with their parents, please call 1800 663 441.
