Design a Road Safety Banner Competition!
Recognition Express is delighted to be teaming up with the national road safety charity Brake for the sixth year running to help promote Road Safety Week 2014 to primary schools across the UK.
We are inviting pupils aged 4-11 from your school to enter this competition by creating a banner design to help raise awareness about road safety.
There will be twelve prize-winners, each of whom will have a large-scale banner featuring their winning design printed for display outside their school during Road Safety Week (17-23 November) to raise awareness about the importance of driving slowly.
In addition, winning schools will receive a high-visibility drawstring bag for each child and the pupil behind the winning design will receive a special personalised award.
"A valuable initiative"
"Road Safety Week is a community event, so we are always thrilled when organisations take part," said Joe Burns, Corporate Fundraiser at Brake. “Recognition Express’ banner design competition offers a fun way for schools to get involved and share important road safety messages with their pupils and the wider community. We encourage schools across the country to take part and use the opportunity to plan lessons and activities surrounding Road Safety Week.” Nigel Toplis, Managing Director, Recognition Express says: “The road safety competition has become an important part of our calendar – the whole business gets behind it. I am sure pupils will have a lot of fun designing banners to communicate this very important message and we look forward to seeing the entries.” It's easy to enter!
To get involved simply download our online entry form HERE where you will find a design template on the reverse which can be photocopied and completed for each design entry. Entries should then be posted to the address provided by the closing date of Friday 10th October 2014.
This year’s official Road Safety Week theme is "Look out for each other" which gives your budding artists plenty of scope to come up with a great design.
We are looking for bold, eye catching designs. Remember your road safety banner could be displayed outside school premises, so make sure it attracts attention!
