SINCE the launch of London's new 2012 Olympic logo, many people have suggested that a child could have designed better.

So we are giving our youngsters the chance.

Unlike the Olympic Committee, we do not have £400,000 to give away but we do have ten £10 vouchers to reward creators of the best designs.

Just like the official design, the logo needs to include the Olympic rings, the date 2012 and the word London.

The rest is up to you.

We will send the top ten entries to London 2012 Committee. It might just give them some ideas.

The contest is open to children up to the age of 11 and can be created either with pens and paints, on on a computer programme. Closing date for entries is Thursday, June 21.

Send your designs to 2012 logo, c/o Pat Stannard, Wanstead and Woodford Guardian, 480-500 Larkshall Road, Highams Park, London. E4 9GD. The editor's decision is final.
