Cheshire Show and Blue Light Open Day poster competition

Cheshire Constabulary carries out a number of initiatives to raise awareness of hate crime.  

We understand the importance of providing that information in ways that can be easily understood. We use posters to get schools involved, word searches and word finds to open up discussion with peers, parents and teachers. 

This summer we have asked young people across Cheshire to get creative and colour in hate crime car pictures. 

At two of the events we have attended - Cheshire Show and Blue Light Open Day - we have offered winning designs a prize. 

Each event had three prizes to give away to the budding artists. Winners were selected in age categories – under three, four to seven, and over eight. Our most mature entrant was Charlotte age 39 ¾ at Cheshire Show while our youngest was just one.  

A big thank you to all of the entrants and the judging process was very difficult. All of the winner entries listed below have received their prizes.
