Council calls for young artists for road safety campaign

Apr 17, 2024

Entries are now open for budding young local artists to enter the Queenstown Lakes District Council’s Road Safety Week Bus Stop display competition. 

QLDC one network roading technician Sarah Thomson says the competition aims to help engage young people in road safety through getting creative.

“This year over road safety week we’re celebrating our road safety heroes - from emergency services and health professionals to road workers, transport engineers and community campaigners, every single person has a part to play in making journeys safer,” she says.

“Our art competition is a fun and creative way for kids to get involved, celebrate our local heroes and think about why road safety matters."

An entry form can be collected from any council office, library or recreation centre district wide, or downloaded here.

The winning artwork will be displayed at local bus stops in Queenstown and Wānaka during Road Safety Week, starting on May 20.

Entries close on Friday, May 3.
