Brake’s road safety poster competition, sponsored by Coop Insurance, was a fun, new project for schools that aimed to inspire and engage children, aged 4-11, about the need for drivers to slow down so kids can walk and cycle to school safely.

Schools could register to receive our free e-resource pack that enabled them or the children themselves to talk about the dangers of adults speeding in their community– something that puts kids' lives at risk every single day.

The competition was launched in April 2017 and saw 500 schools register to encourage children to think about the dangers of speed and the need for road safety awareness in their community. We had 6,850 entries from across the UK, all demonstrating the children’s knowledge of important road safety messages.

Winners were chosen based on; successful communication of a message focusing on speed, their ability to spread road safety messages to parents and the community, aesthetic value, creativity of the design and concept and readability. The winning designs were turned in to large, professional banners that went on display outside of the school or in the community and the children received a Halfords bike for themselves, a £100 Coop voucher and a £100 Hobbycraft hamper. They also won a visit to their local fire station and a visit from Brake mascot Zak the Zebra.

Two highly commended entries were also chosen and won their design turned into a banner among other prizes for themselves and the school.


A huge congratulations to this year's winners:
