Road safety calendar competition
Every year we run a calendar competition, open to all schools in the area.
The winning painting illustrates the council calendar - 10,000 copies go to schools, offices, libraries, colleges, hospitals and council buildings.
The 16 successful paintings are then used to promote road safety throughout the year.
Invitations to take part are sent out each August, along with guidelines.
Head teachers send in the best five from each class. They are then reviewed by the Traffic and Transportation Section and placed into five categories.
The final 16 entries are judged by a panel consisting of the Road Safety Team, members of the Traffic and Transportation Section, representatives from Education Resources and other partners in road safety.
The overall winner and first, second and third from each entry group are invited along to a ceremony in the Council Chambers where the prizes are presented by the Provost. The children's artwork is displayed on large screens and the overall winner receives a cash prize and a personalised quaich. His or her school also receives a quaich and a large version of the calendar.
