Walk to School Week poster competition

PUPILS in primary schools across Newtownabbey are being invited to show off their creative talents by entering this year’s Walk to School Week Design a Poster Competition.

The competition, which is being run by the Department for Regional Development’s Travelwise NI team, asks primary school children to reflect on how they travel to and from school by designing an A3 poster, based around the theme ‘Step Forward in Time.’

The winning design will be produced as part of the Walk to School Week promotional materials and sent to schools across Northern Ireland. The school of the winning pupil will also be rewarded with a £750 voucher for an outdoor activity centre or a sports retailer of their choice.

The competition will run until March 16 and is open to all local primary schools. The winner will be announced on April 5.
