Brake organises 2Young2Die competition
The road safety charity Brake is running a national road safety competition aimed at young people aged 11-25 years.
The competition, which is part of Brake’s 2Young2Die campaign, aims to involve young people with road safety and empower them to make a difference to the attitudes and behaviour of their peers.
The competition challenges young people to form a group to promote the 2Young2Die campaign in their school, college or community group.
In order to participate, the group must do two things. First, organise a road safety event in their area, such as arranging a photo call for the local media or creating a road safety commercial; second, they must run a fundraising event for Brake.
The competition runs until April 2010.
