Active Travel Art Competition 2021
About this activity
Suitable for all schools. Supports the Art and Design National Curriculum
TfL are running a pan-London campaign across radio, outdoor advertising and digital advertising to advise schoolchildren to walk or cycle to school and remind them of the School Services.The unexpected benefits of London can be uncovered when we make the choice to step outside and walk, cycle or scoot to school. Students might find a new part of London, make a new friend or see some animals along the way.
STARS and the London Transport Museum launched a new competition on Monday 8th March 2021. For this competition, we want students to get creative and and make something that shows how you can make big changes to how you travel to help improve the quality of the environment or your life. The competition deadline is 5th May 2021. The BIG Change Competition
As part of our campaign and competition we’re challenging you to launch a poster competition at your school. To participate, please ask pupils to travel actively to school one morning and then create a poster about the unexpected fun they came across along the way! You can run the competition on a class-or school-wide basis. It can also be launched to coincide with May’s Walk to School Week or Bike Week in June.
The posters can then be displayed in key locations around the school to help encourage students and parents to make active travel choices throughout the summer.
Why not celebrate the winner and their creations by announcing their names in assembly? You could also feature them in your school's newsletter or on your website as part of a promotion activity.
