Road safety calendar competition
Every year we run a calendar competition, open to all schools in the area.
All the winning designs are on our 2022 road safety calendar pages.
Invitations to take part are sent out to all schools along with guidelines. This year we received just under 3,000 paintings from 99 schools. Head teachers send in the best five from each class. They are then reviewed by the Traffic and Transportation Section and placed into the five categories.
Primary 1 and 2 pupils’ designs had to be based on ‘in-car safety’, for P3/4 the theme was ‘safe places to cross and play’, for P5/6 it was ‘distractions’, for P7 it was ‘safe and sustainable travel’ and for secondary pupils, it was ‘learning to drive’.
These entries were whittled down by the Traffic and Transportation Section and the final 16 entries were judged remotely by a panel of councillors, council officials, Scottish Fire and Rescue, and Police.
This year's Overall Winner, Freya Richardson, from Chapelton Primary School, received £100 prize money, an A0-sized calendar, and a trophy.
The winners of each individual section were also rewarded for their designs and highly commended certificates issued to pupils whose artwork or road safety messaging stood out.
