Congratulations to the winners of the #WeAreBristolKids competition

The #WeAreBristolKids competition was launched in May when many people noticed how a few drivers were ignoring the speed limit and putting the lives of pedestrians and cyclists at risk.

The shortlisted entries were judged by the Mayor and his team and Councillor Helen Godwin commented: 

Congratulations to the winners of the inaugural #WeAreBristol Kids poster competition encouraging drivers to Slow Down – the quality and imagination of the entries was outstanding and it was hard to choose the winners. 

The children and young people of Bristol have risen to the challenges of life under lockdown and this competition is just another great example of how engaged they are in making our city a better place to live. 

Well done to all the winners and all those who took part.

Both Hannah and Mia go to Bristol Grammar School, located in an area where busy, congested roads and drivers ignoring the 20mph speed limit are major issues.  Well done both for creating these outstanding designs and reminding drivers that #WeAreAllInThisTogether!
