You can use the GIMP logo, and even sell your magazine if you wanted.
There is no "non commercial" restriction on the use of the logo. From

So there is no problem in using in your magazine.
Also if your goal is for students to find good software, I would
advise you don't just name them but also write down the exact address
where to find them (for GIMP: http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ ).
We have regular cases of malwares trying to spread by usurping GIMP
names. So users should only download GIMP from the official place, or
some well known and trusted third-party.
