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 2020 (16th – 22th November) for NO NEED TO SPEED.

The pupil behind the winning design will receive a special personalised trophy.

Design themes…

This 2020 official Road Safety Week theme is “No Need To Speed” 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.

Important Campaign

Katie Shephard, 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.”

Chris Masters, Director of Recognition Express says: “The road safety competition has become an important part of our calendar, and I am both relieved and delighted that we can run it again this year after all of the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. This year’s theme is particularly important. Reducing speed on the roads saves lives and banners designed by children will help drive home the ‘no need to speed’ message.

“I am sure pupils will have a lot of fun designing their banners and we look forward to seeing the entries. Brake does an excellent job of keeping road safety on the political agenda and we are proud to once again be a sponsor of  Road Safety Week.”
