A Birmingham-based road safety organisation is so excited by its plans for a new video education series for schools that it wants budding young song writers to join in the fun.
DriveSafe & StaySafe, which is producing a new cartoon series The Conies to help keep children safe especially in travelling to and from school, is inviting primary schools from across the West Midlands to create original lyrics for a song promoting road safety.
The competition will support UN Global Road Safety Week from May 4-10, the campaign theme of which is ‘Save kids’ lives’.
The winning entry will be put to music and film by professional musicians and video producers at Birmingham production company Goodmedia Ltd and promoted on radio and through social media. All entries will be featured on the DriveSafe & StaySafe website.
The Conies features a cartoon family based on traffic cones that deliver safety messages through their fun antics and storylines. The series is being produced with the support of the European Regional Development Fund and rock legend and philanthropist Rick Wakeman.
