THE hunt is on to find a budding young artist from Warrington to mark Road Safety Week.

Primary school children aged between four and 11 are being urged to create a road safety banner to mark the national week beginning on November 18.

The competition is being organised by Recognition Express Warrington and road safety charity Brake to help improve children's knowledge about the importance of staying road on the roads.

Winners will receive a special award along with a large-scale printed banner featuring their design to display outside their school.

There will also be high-visibility reflector gifts for every pupil in the school.

Alan Stones, director of Recognition Express Warrington said: "Road Safety Week aims to inspire thousands of schools, organisations and communities to take action and promote road safety awareness during the week and beyond and it is a privilege to be involved.

"Our competition is a fantastic opportunity to engage primary school children and help establish good road safety sense for years to come.

"Over the years we have been blown away by the creative ideas primary school children in Warrington come up with to get life-saving messages across."
