Tauranga City Council’s Design Your Own Helmet competition is back for another year.
The annual contest gives Tauranga and Western Bay of Plenty primary, intermediate, and high school students and teachers a chance to win their own design professionally painted on a helmet by local airbrush artist, Anthony Brodie.
Last year the judges had a tough job choosing from more than 600 designs. The 2021 winning creations featured robots, flowers, a celebrating soccer player, and a surfer about to catch a wave.
“Riding a bike is a great active way to get to school and wearing an approved and correctly fitting helmet is vital,” says Council’s Director of Transport, Brendan Bisley.
“We are big supporters of kids riding bikes and this annual competition is a suburb way for students and teachers to put their creative skills to use while reiterating such an important safety message.”
Entering is easy, simply download the template – all the instructions and entry information are in the document.
The last day for entries is Friday, February 25 and winners will be announced in April once the 6 winning helmets have been selected and designed.
