Competition for schoolchildren to design safety pictures

Derbyshire Police has launched a competition for local schoolchildren to get involved in. 

The challenge is to create an advice/top tips picture for one of the key safety topics listed below.

The picture needs to be on an A4 piece of paper and designed in the landscape position.

It should give helpful safety advice that other students in the school would find useful or that parents/carers would need to know.

The safety topics to choose from are: 

  • Darker Nights safety
  • Internet Safety
  • Sharing worries or concerns – talking to a trusted adult
  • How to contact the police
  • Walk/cycle to school safety
  • Outdoor safety
  • Water safety
  • Road Safety
  • Bullying and your own safety
  • Halloween Safety
  • Bonfire Night Safety
  • Christmas Safety
  • OR a cover picture for the force’s calendar that shows the police working with schools.

A panel will judge the submissions in September and the winners will be announced in October.

The winning entries will then be created into a calendar which students/parents/schools will be able to download for free in December.

Pupils who submit winning entries will be provided with a printed copy of the calendar for themselves and their school.

The deadline for submissions is Thursday 30 June 2022.

The following information must be listed on the back of any pictures submitted: 

  • First name of pupil(s)
  • School name
  • Year group and Class
  • Teacher’s name and email address
