Huddersfield schools have been invited to enter a competition to design road safety banners.

The fifth annual competition is run by Huddersfield-based road safety charity Brake and Recognition Express West Yorkshire, a specialist supplier of promotional products, name badges and school uniforms.

The competition is linked to Road Safety Week, which runs from November 18 to 24 and this year takes the theme of Tune in to Road Safety.

Children aged four to 11 are invited to design banners encouraging people to tune in to road safety whether they are driving, walking, cycling, skating or running – and by avoiding distractions such as listening to music, using a phone or eating.

Winners will get a large-scale banner featuring their design to display outside their school. They will also receive 300 high-visibility drawstring bags and the pupil behind the winning design will receive a special award.

Each school taking part will be given free annual membership to Brake. This includes a Road Safety Week e-action pack with downloadable posters and tips on activities, as well as ongoing news bulletins on other Brake initiatives.

Entry details are available at or email

The closing date is October 18.
