CLIPPER CLUB: Start designing those banners!

Captain Jack has heard all about a road safety competition for Clipper Club members to get creative and involved in!

AHOY there, ship mates!

For the fourteenth year running, school uniform specialist Recognition Express has teamed up with road safety charity BRAKE to launch its annual “design a road safety banner” competition.

Primary school children aged four to 11 are invited to submit designs for the competition based on the theme and this year’s BRAKE Road Safety Week (November 14-20) which is “Safe roads for all – everyone’s life matters on roads”.

The campaign aims to highlight recent changes in the Highway Code giving pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and motorcyclists precedence over cars and all other vehicles.

Schools can upload entries online or send them by email, or enter by post.

Twelve winners across the UK will receive a full-size high-quality banner of their design to display outside their school during the long winter nights and a personalised trophy for themselves to mark their achievement.

Chris Masters, managing director of Recognition Express, said: “Our design a road safety banner competition has become a fixture in the calendar of many local schools.

“We are always impressed by the creativity and quality of the designs sent in each year and look forward to seeing more entries in 2022 than ever before.”
