Road Safety

 

For the 11th year running Recognition Express is proud to be teaming up with the national road safety charity Brake to help promote Road Safety Week 2016 to primary schools across the UK.

The Road Safety Banner Competition invites pupils aged 4-11 from your school to enter this competition by creating a banner design to help raise awareness about road safety week.

There will be a maximum of twelve prize prize-winners, of whom will have a large-scale banner featuring their winning design printed for display outside their school during Road Safety Week 2019 (18th – 24th November) to STEP UP FOR SAFE STREETS.

In addition, winning schools will receive a high-visibility reflector for each child and the pupil behind the winning design will receive a special personalised trophy.

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 11th October 2019.


Design themes…

This 2019 official Road Safety Week theme is “Step Up For Safe Streets” 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!

Free annual membership to Brake for each participating school. This includes a Road Safety Week e-action pack with downloadable posters and tips on activities that schools can run, as well as on-going news bulletins on other Brake initiatives and campaigns.

“A valuable initiative”

Joe Burns, corporate fundraiser at Brake says: “Road Safety Week is a community event, so we are always thrilled when businesses take part and we value our long-term relationship with Recognition Express. Their banner design competition has become a regular and important element of our annual campaign offering 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 of Recognition Express says: “The road safety competition has become an important part of our calendar – the whole business gets behind it. This year’s theme is relevant to everybody, and I know as a business we have been looking at ways to encourage people to consider the implications that having a sedentary lifestyle and relying too much on motorised transport can have on so many different aspects of life.

“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. Brake does an excellent job of keeping road safety on the political agenda and we fully support the campaign which drives home the message that the safest mile is the mile not driven.”
