SCHOOLS are being invited to enter their designs for a Road Safety Banner competition.

Road Safety Week takes place from November 19 and this is the fourth year that the competition has been run.

Road safety charity Brake organises Road Safety Week and the theme this year is Slower Speeds = Happy People.

Children aged from four up to 11 are invited to submit their designs for a road safety banner to display outside their school to help get the message across to cars to slow down.

The winning school will receive a full size printed version of their banner, plus 300 high-visibility drawstring bags for their school and a special golden star award for the pupil who drew the winning design.

The competition is run by Brake and Recognition Express Southern.

Richard Coteau, corporate liaison at Brake, said: ‘It’s a great way to get children thinking about how to 
keep themselves safe near roads.

‘We encourage schools to take part and to use the opportunity to plan lessons and activities ready for Road Safety Week.’

The closing date for entries is Friday, October 19.
