Students who are part of the secondary school education programme – StreetSense, are being invited to script and record a short road safety video on the dangers of being distracted at the roadside.
The competition is being led by Hampshire County Council’s road safety team in a bid to raise awareness of the dangers of using mobile phones, listening to music or being distracted by friends when crossing roads.
The StreetSense students are to write a script in groups, and then film their ideas on their mobile phones or video cameras. Entries will then be sent to the road safety team and once vetted, could appear on facebook.
The road safety team will judge all entries and announce the finalists, with the winner being decided by a facebook vote.
The winning entry will be turned into a professional video, with the students involved in it’s filming and production. Copies of the video will be shared with all secondary schools in Hampshire. The video may also be used locally and nationally, to help promote road safety issues across other regions.

Deadline for entries is Friday 15 February.
