Young artists are being urged to put their skills to good use by designing a spectacular statue which will go on display in an office park in Bracknell.
Goodman property group, which owns the Arlington Square park in Bracknell town centre, has organised the competition.
Staff from the company want youngsters aged between 11 and 18 to come up with the designs.
The design of the park is actually based on the proportions of St James’ Square in Mayfair, London.
The winning design will be made of a solid block of stone two metres high and a meter wide.
It will be made of a light grey marble and the winner will get to see the whole process from paper to the statue being placed on the site itself.
Richard Potter, property services director of UK business parks for Goodman, said: “As one of the leading providers of business space in the UK we pride ourselves on creating high-quality working environments for our customers.
“An important part of this involves working with the local community to ensure that our business parks are not seen in isolation and are beneficial to the wider area.
“Our new competition ensures that both of these objectives are fulfilled.
“Workers on the park will greatly appreciate the work of a local young artist and it also gives schoolchildren in the local area a fun insight into the world of work.”
