Shimano have launched their Cycling Concept Award 2006 with a first prize of 12,500 Euros. Entries should include general proposals to increase bicycle usage at schools, although a project limited to one school could be the winner. The contest focuses on children of five to 16 years old.
Ideas can be described in text, drawings, photographs or any other medium. The best entries from previous years have been those that set out action plans with a clear time line. The proposals should show how and when the money will be spent, list the total budget and include a summary of no more than 500 words. Any idea is welcome, so give it a try and maybe you will be the lucky winner!
Entries should arrive by December 31st 2005 at: Shimano Europe B.V., Harald Troost, Industrieweg 24, 8071 CT Nunspeet, The Netherlands.
