Farm safety competition

27th May 2020

We have just been invited to participate in another competition today!  

The following message is from HSENI and we encourage as many children as possible to enter the competition over the next 12 weeks:

We are inviting Primary School pupils (Foundation, Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2) and pupils from Special Schools to take the opportunity to enter our poster competition which will commence on 1st June 2020 and run for 12 weeks. To do so each child shoulddraw or paint a picture and the design of this picture should be based on the key dangers on the farm from one of the following four categories –

Dangers from slurry Dangers from farm animals​​​ Dangers from tractors & other farm machinery Dangers from falls & falling objects

Each week we will invite entries from one of the above categories. The theme for each week will be announced every Monday on HSENI’s Facebook page and on our website Terms & Conditions are attached and can also beviewed on our website.


Entries should be submitted portrait style on either A3 or A4 sized plain paper. To ensure entry to the competition is as simple as possible this year, we would ask that a photograph or scan of the completed picture is e-mailed to

A cover note on the e-mail should state the child’s name, primary school attended and contact telephone number for a parent/guardian or responsible adult.


We will select a winner each week for the 12 weeks of the competition and winners will be notified the following week. .

Prizes for each of the 12 winners will be a £30 One4all gift card.


It is important that after a picture is submitted by e-mail, the original hard copy is retained as we will require the 12 overall winners selected to provide this for printing purposes. Please note, failure to provide a hard copy will result in the prize not being awarded.


In previous years HSENI has produced a calendar made up of the winning entries to the competition and the calendar has been distributed to over 42,000 rural homes throughout Northern Ireland, HSENI hopes if possible to produce a calendar for 2021 from the winning entries to this year’s competition.
