Drawing on ideas for road safety

ORANGE youth are being asked to create an artwork that will help save lives.

The competition is part of the road safety initiative being spearheaded by RockUp Alive, a group of local young people.

Already a slogan competition has been held and Canobolas Rural Technology High School student Rebeckah Milham won with "Hey Bro Go Slow".

Now RockUp Alive wants an artwork that incorporates this slogan.

The artwork will be transformed into a bumper sticker, poster and CD cover.

RockUp Alive member Tara Selwood said the competition was part of a broader scheme to get young people to take more care on the roads.

"Before we went through with getting the funding we talked to the road safety officer who gave us statistics showing lots of young people are being killed in accidents where speed is involved," she said.

"This message about slowing down is something that really needs to get out there."

Entries must use the slogan, should be no bigger than A5 and can be sent to 79-81 Kite Street.

The competition will run for the next two months and is funded by the Motor Accidents Authority of NSW and Orange City Council.
