The Sunshine Coast Council and Sunshine Coast District Police have launched a school road safety artwork competition to engage local primary school children in discussing road safety.
Sunshine Coast primary school students are invited to submit a road safety artwork of their own design to be judged by our Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson and the ten divisional Sunshine Coast Councillors.
The road safety messages can be applicable to any class of road user including trucks, buses, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, wheeled recreational devices and pedestrians. It can also target driving behaviours including those that contribute to the Fatal Five; speed, fatigue, seal belts, distraction and drink/drug driving.
What’s your road safety message going to be?
A total of 12 designs will be chosen with each winner receiving a $100 gift voucher.
The exciting prospect is that each one of the 12 winning art works will be placed on a number of Sunshine Coast Council vehicles and be used to produce a Sunshine Coast Council Road Safety Calendar for 2018.
The Sunshine Coast Council Road Safety Artwork vehicles will be driven throughout the beautiful Sunshine Coast and provide the opportunity for road users and families to engage in the road safety messages and discuss how important it is to drive safely and keep our road safe.
Closing on Friday, August 4, interested schools and community groups are encouraged to get their entries in soon.
