2017 ESSAY WRITING CONTEST
Leaders of Tomorrow is celebrating its 7th Annual Essay Writing Contest with a new introductory title:
How would you make our roads safer and educate your community on road safety?
Many students walk to and from school every day. What are the biggest factors that affect their safety on the streets? Are there distractions? How does the increased use of smartphones, headphones and other mobile devices affect their ability to be an alert pedestrian?
Pedestrians and drivers both must share the road. What are your largest concerns about having to interact with drivers? What are drivers doing that put your safety at risk? Tell us how you will reduce traffic casualties in your essay.
School principals and/or teachers are encouraged to request the Peel Regional Police or an authoritative speaker to do a presentation on the topic of Road Safety at your school. Not only will the students learn about being safe on the streets, but will also find good material for the essay writing contest. Leaders of Tomorrow will gladly co-ordinate with you to set up a date and time for a presentation. Early booking is advisable to secure your preferred date.
