Students and members of the public are invited to take part in a cartoon drawing competition.

The competition, organised by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department in conjunction with six major organisations, is the first in a series of activities under a two-month campaign to promote public awareness of the safe use of lifts and escalators.

The six organisations are the Airport Authority, Hong Kong Housing Authority, Lift and Escalator Contractors Association, Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation, Mass Transit Railway Corporation and Radio Television Hong Kong.

The contest is divided into three categories for primary students, secondary students and adults. Each category will have three winners and 10 merit awards. Each of the top prize winners will be awarded a $5,000 gift coupon for computer products.

Application forms and leaflets are available from the organisers.

Student participants may submit their work either individually or through their schools.

For inquiries, call 2688-1288.

Promotional trailers and educational interviews on the safe use of lifts and escalators will be broadcast on the RTHK Radio 2 Morning Suite programme next month.
