As part of the Road Safety for Schools campaign, the ION team working on the Suikerpark urban development project want to do their bit by providing all pupils of Veurne's nurseries and primary schools with a new high-visibility vest at the start of the new school year 2018-2019.
In order to decorate these high-visibility vests in a playful way, project developer ION launched a drawing contest in which the children can give their interpretation of a sustainable neighbourhood such as Suikerpark, of how they experience a living environment with safe roads, of how they see the future of housing and so on. The jury consists of representatives of the City of Veurne, WVI (the West Flanders intermunicipal association) and ION. They will select one winning drawing that will be printed on all high-visibility vests. The vests will be distributed to all nurseries and primary schools in Veurne at the start of the new school year 2018-2019.
The colouring sheets and a brief explanation of the contest were distributed to all primary schools in Veurne. In addition, a collection box was placed in the schools for the children to deposit their drawings. The deadline for participation is Friday 16 March. The boxes will be collected during the week of 19 March. The winner will be announced in April 2018.
