​Avril Lavigne launches ‘Fly’ logo design contest in support of the Special Olympics

Avril Lavigne is launching a special contest to help promote her new song, “Fly,” ahead of the Special Olympics World Summer Games. The Canadian singer has asked fans to design a logo for the soon-to-be-released single, with all the track's proceeds benefitting the sports organization.

The winning artwork will be featured in promotions for the song's release ahead of the games, which take place in Los Angeles from July 25 to August 2.

Avril herself will hand-pick the top design – which may be featured on a T–shirt and other paraphernalia – from two to three finalists. The lucky winner will receive an authentic signed photo, as well as a “thank you” tweet and Facebook post from the star and promotion on the Avril Lavigne Foundation’s website.

In January, the 30-year-old songstress from Napanee, Ont. took to Twitter to tease “Fly,” revealing that the song’s uplifting lyrics are helping her cope with a mysterious illness.

“Right now I’m using my own (new) song lyrics to help me get through this......” she wrote, adding, “Just reach up, don’t give up until you’ve touched the sky. Just reach up, don’t give up until you’ve realized THAT WE WERE ALL MEANT TO FLY.”

After confirming that she was suffering from undisclosed “health issues” late last year, the singer now appears to be on the mend. Not only is Avril busy promoting “Fly,” but last month she also released a new music video for “Give You What You Like,” a song off of the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.

The "Fly" logo design contest ends on March 31, 2015. Enter here!
