CREATIVE pupils from primary schools in South Yorkshire have come up with posters and poems urging parents to leave the car at home and travel by public transport.
The Year 6 youngsters were asked to create ideas for a competition run by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive.
Winner was Molly Brigg, from St Joseph’s Catholic School, Handsworth, who won £100 worth of vouchers to spend on sports and leisure equipment, and two weekly TravelMasters passes so her parents can give public transport a go.
Eden Cowan from Brook House Junior School, Beighton, and Beth Froggatt, from Charnock Hall Primary School, were runners-up and each won a £25 voucher to spend on sports and leisure equipment.
Molly and Beth wrote poems, while Eden created a poster.
Coun Mick Jameson said they had been ‘overwhelmed’ with the quality of entries: “We hope they manage to make parents think twice about jumping in the car for their next journey.”
