East Herts Council issues Clean Air Day design challenge
East Herts Council is looking for a poster design that is a breath of fresh air as part of its drive to protect the environment.
The local authority is appealing for an eye-catching image to encourage motorists to reduce pollution.
The competition winner will be announced on Clean Air Day on October 8. The best entries could be turned into signs for the council's main car parks.
Bishop's Stortford's Cllr Graham McAndrew, the council's executive member for sustainability, said: "We're looking for colourful, striking designs that will make drivers think twice about leaving their car engines idling.
"Pollution harms the health of millions. Clean Air Day is a chance to find out more about pollution, share information and help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.
"Creating a climate in which everyone is encouraged to adopt a sustainable lifestyle is a key plank of the council's work and this competition is a step in that direction. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment."
Email your design to firstname.lastname@example.org, either by scanning it or taking a photo. Entries will be considered by an independent judge. The council will showcase winning designs on social media.
Entries must include your name, age, town or village and a daytime contact number. The deadline for submissions is Monday September 14.
