Design A Road Safety Banner with Recognition Express and Brake
Design A Road Safety Banner!
We are delighted to launch our annual Design a Road Safety Banner Competition for 2012, in partnership with the Road Safety Charity, Brake.
For the fourth year running we are inviting children aged 4-11 from Primary Schools across the UK to submit their ideas for a Road Safety Banner to raise awareness about Road Safety.
There will be twelve regional prize-winners across the country, and if your school wins, your winning design will be printed onto a full size outdoor banner to display outside your school during Road Safety Week (19-25 November).
Winning schools will also receive 300 high visibility drawstring bags each along with a personalised award for the wining designer.
We are looking for bold, eye catching creations. Remember that your design could get displayed outside your school - so make sure it attracts attention!
Why not incorporate Brake’s official RSW theme for 2012 into your design:
- “Slower Speeds = Happy People”
Or one of the following:
- "Please Drive Safely"
- "20 is Plenty"
- "Kids Say Slow Down"
Free Brake affiliate scheme membership for every school
Each school that participates will be given free annual membership to Brake, which includes a RSW e-action pack with downloadable posters, and tips on activities that schools can run during the week, as well as ongoing news bulletins on other Brake initiatives and campaigns.
"The competition is always a great success and is a fun and educational way to teach important road safety messages that help to prevent children being hurt and killed on our roads,” said Richard Coteau, Corporate Fundraiser of Brake.
"We would encourage schools across the country to enter the competition and use it to start planning other lessons and activities for this year's Road Safety Week."
20mph is plenty! “The children put in tremendous time and effort every year and the results are fabulous,” said Nigel Toplis, Managing Director of Recognition Express Ltd
"Brake does an excellent job of keeping road safety on the political agenda and we fully support their campaign to introduce 20mph speed limits around homes, schools and shops.:"
