Win a unique toy and £500 worth of book tokens for your primary school

Closing Date: 30th November 2019

Bring your character to life with the chance to win a unique toy and £500 worth of book tokens for your primary school

Safety Seymour is a bear on a mission; to educate children on the dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO), helping to protect us and our homes. As a gas that is poisonous, colourless and odourless, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), in partnership with Cadent Gas, Wales & West Utilities and SGN is running sessions to help pupils and in turn their families, learn more about the associated risks, which together could save lives.

Seymour keeps us safe by fighting off the evil villain, Carbon Monoxide, but he needs help tracking it down. Northern Gas Networks is challenging primary school children - aged 5 to 11 - to give Carbon Monoxide a character and design their very own villain counterpart to allow Seymour to carry on his duties. Complete with an evil identity and of course an outfit fit for a villain – what will your Safety Seymour enemy look like?

The best Carbon Monoxide villain in each age range will see the design come to life with the character transformed into a unique, sustainable stuffed toy, as well as winning £500 worth of book tokens for their primary school submitting the idea.

Two runners up prizes will also be awarded in each category – Natural Earth Paints (ages 5 to 7) and TOMY’s Articulate for Kids (ages 7 to 11).

Winners will be selected by a panel from Northern Gas Networks, who will be on the look-out for creativity and an understanding surrounding the dangers of Carbon Monoxide.
