RIVERTON Primary School student Tiaana Wintz has been named as the winner in the West Australian Football Commission’s (WAFC) Design-a-Jumper competition.

The Design-a-Jumper competition, run by the WAFC in conjunction with Burley Sekem, encourages primary school students to design a football jumper that reflects their school’s ethos and incorporates local landmarks or traditions.

This year, the competition attracted 50 entries.

Tiaana’s (11) design incorporated her school colours of black and yellow and highlighted the kangaroos found near the school.

WAFC manager of school programs David Lindsay congratulated the students on their winning designs and thanked all the schools who entered.

“There were some really great jumper designs this year but the winning two really stood out,” he said.

“The winning designs made very clear and creative ties to the values and ethos of their schools.

“The football jumpers will now promote their schools’ identity each time they play.”

Formal presentations will be conducted with WAFC District Development Staff when the completed jumpers arrive.
