Competitions

We want to encourage as many people to travel actively and have come up with three exciting competitions so people can inspire others to walk and cycle for their journeys.

Click each box below to find out more.

Primary school art competition

We are inviting primary school pupils to create a piece of artwork to inspire others to get more active through healthier, environmentally greener journeys.

An example of this could be the positive changes you have made over the last few months with walking or cycling.  You may use any material (new or recycled) and any process, for example drawing, painting, photography, computer aided design, or collage.

Overall winner: £50 Shopping Voucher and 5 Runner Up prizes of £25 Shopping Vouchers 

Plus: one overall winner wins a Scooter Pod for their school.
