On Weds 25th April – 11 schools attended Safety Central in Lymm to record their radio safety adverts in response to a competition launched in January.
Radio adverts created by young people are being shared on You Tube, as a final part of the competition to see which entry can get the most hits and likes.
This was launched by the Safer Schools and Young Persons Partnership with the support of Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner, David Keane, and Cheshire Crimebeat to help young people spread the word to their peers about staying safe online and on the street.
The adverts are focused on the dangers young people face when using the internet and social media, what young people come across when they’re out and about and how to say ‘no’ to something they don’t want to do.
11 schools are through to the final stages of the competition and were given the opportunity to visit Cheshire Fire and Rescue’s education centre, Safety Central, in Lymm to professionally record their adverts. 13 adverts were created.
Their adverts are now available to listen to on You Tube – The school with the most votes, wins! Each school will be doing the best they can to get as many votes as possible.
The competition launched on Wednesday 2nd May and closes on Monday 14th May at 5pm.
The school with the most views will receive a trophy, have their advert played on the radio and their advert will be used by Cheshire Police in future communication with young people.
