National Road Safety Poster Making Contest

The Department of Education (DepEd), in collaboration with the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) and the National Coalition for Commuter Safety and Protection, Inc., (NCCSP1), will launch the National Road Safety Poster Making Contest on March 5 in all schools nationwide. The contest will culminate and highlight the celebration of the World Remembrance Day on November 18, 2012.

The contest aims to heighten awareness and increase level of participation in DepEd's advocacy or road safety among teachers and school children.

In view of this, schools are encouraged to hold varied launching activities to mark the beginning of the contest.

Three schools, one elementary or secondary school each in Antipolo City, Iloilo City and Davao City shall be considered for special media coverage.
