BUDDING game designers could see their work come to life in a competition being launched this week.
As part of their campaign to promote road safety, Coles Miller Solicitors in Dorset have teamed up with digital marketing agency Intergage to build and refresh the LV= Streetwise Home Safety game (www.homesafetygame.com).
As part of this refresh LV=Streetwise are seeking budding game designers to help design an exciting new road safety scenario. The winner will see their road safety scenario made in to a fully interactive part of the game, helping keep thousands of pupils of the future safe on the roads.
The competition is open to children aged 5-11 in school years one to six in Dorset and designs will need to include five important road safety dangers. The winner will be the child who creates the best design and includes the most important road safety dangers, with the best explanations.
The design can include anything from vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, traffic lights, a zebra crossing, your school and even animals. It needs to include 5 really important road safety dangers.
Last year the injury claim and road accident solicitors sponsored an LV=Streetwise competition that encouraged school pupils to design new cycle helmets that children would be more likely to wear. More than 750 children entered the competition. The solicitors gave away prizes including a new bike and 80 cycle helmets
“Our solicitors see the full impact of what happens to accident victims so we are strongly committed to helping LV=Streetwise prevent these tragedies from occurring in the future,” says Lee Taylor, Marketing Manager at Coles Miller.
“It is great to able to help put something back into the local community. LV=Streetwise does such valuable work,” he added.
Having dealt with serious injury claims from road accidents, road safety is something Coles Miller can’t promote enough, a message echoed by the LV=Streetwise safety facility in West Howe.
“As well as being an opportunity for children to get creative and use their imaginations, this competition is about reminding people of the dangers of the road and to help save lives,” says Alison Shelton, manager at the LV=Streetwise Centre and one of the judges in the competition.
