Local Gordon MSP Alex Salmond, has written to every primary school in Gordon to encourage entries to the Lollipop Person of the Year 2010 event, sponsored by Kwik Fit Insurance.

The event aims to raise awareness of road safety issues, and highlight the importance of lollipop people to children and schools.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr Salmond said:

“Lollipop men and women do a tremendous job keeping children safe on our busy roads. They deserve our respect and our sincere gratitude.

"The event also highlights key road safety issues and the importance of sticking to the highway code.

“I have written to every school in Gordon, to encourage them to nominate their lollipop person. As well as casting their vote, school pupils can also explain why they are nominating their Lollipop person which can include drawings, poems, songs and videos.

“I wish every entrant good luck, with the successful person winning £500 and the school winning the grand prize of £3,000 to spend on school equipment.”

The competition will also announce 12 regional winners from the UK who will receive £100 and each of the 12 schools will be awarded with £500. For additional information, please visit
