The closing date for this year's competition has been extended from 10 May to 30 September 2020 due to coronavirus, so please continue to send us your wonderful pieces of art until then to be included in this year's prize draw. 


We’re looking for budding young artists to help us spread the word on the dangers of the silent killer, carbon monoxide (CO).

To enter the competition, you must be 5-11 years old and submit a piece of art warning people of the dangers of CO. Your art work can be a brilliant poster, cartoon, video or poem.

We have more information about the dangers of carbon monoxide on our CO advice page.

Get creative!
