A road safety campaign designed by students from Movilla High School in Newtownards has won the first ever Peugeot Student Road Safety Award.
The team representing Movilla High School was chosen after pitching what was agreed to be the best campaign, to key road safety and industry leaders on Monday 21st October, at the Peugeot Student Road Safety Award judging final held at St. Matthew’s Conference Centre, Westminster.
The winners will now enjoy exclusive access to the advanced Peugeot Engineering and Product Development facilities in Belchamp, as part of an all-inclusive, three-day experience. This includes transportation to Peugeot’s industrial heartland in Sochaux, Eastern France and a visit to the Peugeot Museum, which traces the 203 years of Peugeot’s history.
William Morton, 16, from Movilla High School, said, “When the school’s name was announced, we just couldn’t believe it. The other campaigns in the competition were excellent, so we didn’t quite expect to win.
“The experience was fantastic and we cannot wait to go over to France to visit Peugeot’s Engineering and Product Development facilities, where we will learn about how Peugeot makes passenger vehicles safe for the road.”
