The Limerick Smarter Travel School Project supports, promotes and delivers a wide range of competitions throughout the year. A summary of these are provided below:
Limerick Smarter Travel Competitions
The Limerick Smarter Travel 'Miniature Bike' competition is run in June of each year where schools are invited to create their own miniature bicycle out of recycled material. This competition is run in partnership with the Environmental Section of Limerick City Council.
The Limerick Smarter Travel Golden Bike Award is the award given to the school with the highest number of cyclists during bike week.
Individual School Competitions
Several competitions are run in schools as part of their travel action plan. These vary from school to school and depend on the needs of the school. Students are encouraged to think of their own competitions and realise them with the support of their travel officer.
