Get Creative, Be Safe

We are calling for young people to help us spread the word on the dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO), the silent killer and enter a competition that could see them win top cash prizes for themselves and their school or organisation.

We are looking for entries from children aged between 5 and 11 in any form of media, such as eye-catching cartoons, videos, models, short stories or poems that are informative and accurate in warning of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

In the summer of each year, we’ll pick a winner from Key Stage 1 and 2 from within our network, who will each receive £150 for themselves and £300 for their school or organisation, such as Cubs or Brownies.

Our area winners will then go forward to a national competition where they have a chance to win a further £300 for themselves and £600 for their school or organisation*.

Each area winner will also be invited to attend a prize-giving ceremony (exact date and location TBC).

All entries must be received by Friday 8th May 2020 and judging will take place by the end of May.

Winners will be notified by email.
