"Raise awareness of cancer by making posters to help children learn"​

My idea:

If I was Children’s Mayor of Leeds I will create awareness of causes of cancer because it will help children learn as they don’t have to worry about a member of their community in hospital or that have passed away. I will do this by starting a competition to see who can come up with the best poster and buns which help explain the dangers of smoking and alcohol.

How my idea will make a difference:

My idea will make a difference as if children are stressed and upset or worried about a member of their community they will struggle to learn meaning that they won’t succeed in class. A lot of people in the community would benefit from this idea as teachers will be teaching happy educated children and parents can get on with other things without worrying about children.

Is it a low cost/no cost idea and can children be involved in it?

My first idea is to have a competitive bake sale themed to stopping smoking and alcohol and children will pay 50p if they enter. I will also start a poster competition stopping smoking and alcohol children will pay 20p to enter. The top ten winners will have their posters put up around the city.
