The winners of this year’s Fireworks Safety Poster competition, in which children from 40 schools across the Bath area got involved, have been revealed.
The competition, sponsored by Bath Building Society, is supported by The Rotary Club of Bath which organises the annual firework display in the city centre.
The winners of the five categories were given a money voucher to open a Bath Building Society Account, an art set and a Bath Building Society goody bag.
They will also have the chance to visit the Bath’s Fire Station, arranged by Avon Fire & Rescue Service.
The posters were judged on their safety message and artistic merit.
The judges for this year’s competition were Councillor Dine Romero, Mayor of Bath, Meghann Elvin, Children & Young Persons Manager from Avon Fire & Rescue, Emily Cook, Youth Intervention Lead also from Avon Fire & Rescue, Alan Gait from The Rotary Club of Bath and Tiffany Hardie-Albutt from Bath Building Society.
All the children that entered the competition have been given access to a free child voucher that can be exchanged for a ticket to the city centre display when purchasing an adult ticket.
The Fireworks Display will take place on Saturday 4th November this year at The Recreation Ground.
