Durham Kids' Safety Village

The deadline for illustrations for the Kids’ Safety Village of Durham Region colouring book is Feb. 12.

Artists, you only have a few more days to get your entries in for the upcoming Kids’ Safety Village of Durham Region colouring book.

The safety village, in partnership with The Oshawa Express, is holding a contest to help find illustrations for this new project.

The colouring book will be part of a new safety guide being used as a tool for parents to reinforce safety tips taught to their children after a visit to the Kids’ Safety Village. The handbook will focus on police, fire and bicycle safety.

The winning artist will receive full credit for their work, and can also receive credit towards their high school community service hours.

Please submit one sample of your work in PDF format to, or mail a sample drawing to The Oshawa Express, 774 Simcoe St. S., Oshawa, Ontario L1H 4K6. The deadline for contest entries is Feb. 12. Samples sent in will not be returned, so please send a photocopy.
