“As anti-social behaviour on Metrolink is becoming more and more prevalent, by using the children’s work to raise awareness of this issue and the consequences on both radio and social media, we hope this will help reduce the number of incidents.

The competition helped to engage children in areas situated near to Metrolink stops and feedback from the shortlisted schools, following the prize giving ceremony, was really positive.  The quality of the entries was fantastic
