THE CONTEST OF THE AMERICAN SCHOOL OF MILAN – GENERAL NEWS
Founded in 1962, ASM is an institution with solid foundations that keeps a constant eye toward developing new technologies and is committed to seeking excellence in teaching and learning.
The American School of Milan embraces the more than 42 different nations that form its multicultural community.
640 children (325 boys and 315 girls), aged between 7 and 18 years took part in an internal competition to come up with a name, a symbol and various illustration works for the new currency.
The students received the following inputs:
The project to study a new Currency linking Continents represents a new perspective for the world in economic, political and social terms. The advent of the Euro has united many European nations, benefiting commerce, tourism, and social exchange.
Express your thoughts and hopes on the possible introduction of this new Currency.
Name this new Currency.
The name can be made up, or it can be a combination of words already in use, or initials, or anything else that comes to mind.
A new Currency needs a symbol which will immediately identify it, as with other existing symbols (for example: $ for the Dollar; £ for British Sterling, or for the old Italian Lira; € for the Euro; ¥ for the Japanese Yen; etc.).
Invent a symbol, and try to explain why you decided on this symbol and what it represents.
