The Cameron Frewer Road Safety Education Bursary has been established by Bicycle Queensland in partnership with the Frewer Family to honour the road safety legacy of Cameron Frewer, with a focus on the education of children and young people.
The Bursary program will offer six Awards, each of $250, for students who have the best ideas for promoting aspects of road safety to protect cyclists.
All Queensland primary and high school students will be eligible to enter, with one $250 Award offered in each of six grade categories, outlined below.
Entries can be submitted in any form, from drawings and art, to concepts and designs.
Students will be encouraged to use the Award funding to help pay for the costs of educational material and/or physical activity and sporting items.
The aim of the program is to inspire awareness and understanding of cyclists on our roads from an early age, and to nurture road safety behaviours throughout life.
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 5, 2019.
Please list the name, grade, and school of the student, together with the contact details of their nominated guardian, in the email.
Winners will be announced shortly after then.

Six Awards of $250 will be offered to different grade categories:
Years 1 & 2
Years 3 & 4
Years 5 & 6
Years 7 & 8
Years 9 & 10
Years 11 & 12
Students are permitted and encouraged to enter as many ideas as they wish.
The Awards will be judged based on the best ideas for road safety to promote the protection of cyclists. Ideas may focus on any aspect of road safety related to cycling, whether driver-based, technology-based, infrastructure-related, or cycling-specific initiatives.
There is no prescribed criteria, in order to inspire students to think creatively.
An anonymous shortlist of the best submissions will be assessed by Lachlan, Oscar, and Heidi Frewer and announced shortly after the deadline for submissions on Friday, April 5.
To enter, students can simply email their ideas to email@example.com. Students are permitted and encouraged to enter as many ideas as they wish.
