Nepal Astronomical Society recently held a logo competition for the second National Astronomical Olympiad 2015. The winning logo is by Jensun Yonjan and I must say, it’s pretty creative! I really dig the outline of Nepal and the telescope looking into the sky. Yonjan shared ‘I am very thankful towards Nepal Astronomy Society (NASO) for selecting my design as the first winner. It is a great feeling to be part of NASO through my artwork. I hope this might help inspire other youths to be involved in NASO by giving their time for such logo competition, or even volunteer at the NASO Annual Olympiad. National Astronomy Olympiad Logo Competition is a great way to give a chance for emerging young designers to promote their work in Nepal. It also helps to spread word about NASO and their works for promoting astronomy in Nepal since 1980s.’ Jensun will be donating the cash prize to Maya Universe Academy in Tanahun. Maya Universe Academy is Nepal’s first free private boarding school. Don’t forget to visit the blog to know more about Nepal Astronomical Society!
