Win­ning school stu­dents for the bike and scooter safety poster and rap com­pe­ti­tion for Bike Week 2016 were awarded prizes at a morn­ing tea last Thurs­day.

Kids across Kar­ratha and Roe­bourne cre­ated colour­ful posters which promoted safety on the roads while rid­ing a bike or scooter.

The com­pe­ti­tion was run by the School Drug Ed­u­ca­tion and Road Aware or­gan­i­sa­tion with the help of Scott Cy­cles and the City of Kar­ratha.

SDERA Pil­bara con­sul­tant Ta­nia Nee­son said it was very dif­fi­cult to choose a win­ner out of all the “amaz­ing” en­tries.

Win­ners Katie Healey, 13, Dar­win Whitby, 11, and Gwyneth Diego, 7 were awarded a scooter.

Run­ner ups Es­ther Wil­let Green, 9, and Eloise Kra­tochvill, 6, won a bike hel­met.

Nine year-old Es­ther Willett Green from Saint Paul’s pri­mary school said she loved rid­ing bikes and was very proud of her run­ner-up en­try. “I love draw­ing,” she said. “It’s my ta­lent; I got it from my grandma.”
