Seat Belt Design Competition 2018 - Winners
Claire Ingram, 9, who attends Houston Primary School, Johnstone, has won a national Transport Scotland contest to help promote the wearing of seat belts on school transport.
The other finalists were Jack Parker, 11, from Law Primary School in North Berwick, who was second, and Dion Benson, 11, from Dalmilling Primary School in Ayr, who was third.
The Seat Belt Design Competition invited primary school children to create a logo and slogan to spearhead a campaign to help pupils of all ages understand the safety benefits of seat belts, instil positive lifelong habits around their use and promote good practice at school and council level.
The three finalists were presented with framed versions of their artwork at a lunchtime reception at the Scottish Parliament on 25 April where they met Minister for Transport Humza Yousaf and Gillian Martin MSP.
The competition was created by Transport Scotland’s Road Safety Framework team to help raise awareness of the new Seat Belts on School Transport (Scotland) Act which requires, for the first time, all dedicated school transport to be fitted with seat belts.
The winning logo and slogan will be used to brand the national guidance and publicity materials, which will be sent out to schools across the country.
