Entries wanted for Croydon road safety week competition
Pupils at schools across Croydon are invited to enter designs for road safety banners as part of a Road Safety Week competition.
This year's theme is Tune in to road safety, and children aged four to 11 will be designing banners encouraging people to be safe around the road, whether they are driving, walking, cycling, skating or running, by avoiding distractions such as listening to music, using a phone or eating.
Winners will have a large-scale banner featuring their design printed for display outside their school by Croydon based school uniform specialist Recognition Express.
The school will receive 300 high-visibility drawstring bags and the pupil behind the winning design will receive a special award.
Stephen Bennett, owner of Recognition Express Croydon, says: “We receive more interest in our road safety banners competition every year, and the quality of entries is always very high.
"This year’s theme about avoiding distractions on the road applies to children and adults alike. I am sure pupils at local schools will have a lot of fun designing banners to communicate this very important message."
Participating schools will be given free annual membership to Brake, including a Road Safety Week e-action pack with downloadable posters and tips on activities schools can run.
Competition entry details are available at re-croydon.co.uk/roadsafetyweek. The closing date for entries is Friday, October 18.
