The Aberdeen Cycle Forum has commissioned a “No Idling” banner for schools across the North East to borrow for free on a month-by-month basis.
Our recent no-idling competition was a great success and as a result of that we gave pupil-designed banners to the winning schools in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
However, we realise car engines polluting the air next to school playgrounds is still a problem in many other schools and so we’ve created another banner for loan to schools that don’t have one. If you’d like to borrow our waterproof 2m x 1m banner for your school gate or fence then please get in touch at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re very pleased to announce the winners of the Aberdeen Cycle Forum’s No Idling competition. We received over 50 entries and they were all fabulous which made the judging very difficult. Nevertheless the judges voted for their favourites and we chose three winners and printed two banners.

The Aberdeen Cycle Forum also had final say as we had to select images that would print well and were sufficient resolution for printing.
The unanimous favourite from all judges was a very resourceful design by Alexander Petrov from Cults Primary School. Alexander created a 3D poster using materials from his environment. Because we were unable to print this one onto a banner we awarded Alexander a £20 gift voucher at Alpine Bikes, an Aberdeen Cycle Forum snood, and a certificate. Great job Alex!
The second winner was Ellis Routledge from Milne’s High School in Elgin. Our young judges in particular liked this image. Ellis has received a large waterproof banner with his design on it.
And coming in third was this design by Daniel Fox from Cults Primary School. Daniel has also received a large waterproof banner with his design printed on it.
Thank you to everyone who entered. We enjoyed seeing all the terrific designs and hope the students enjoyed making them.
