Y Magazine was inundated with hundreds of entries by children who took our important Road Safety Pledge, making it a tough decision for our judges to choose the top three entries.
Organised as part of the GCC’s recent Road Safety Week, Y Magazine’s campaign was aimed at helping children across the Sultanate to understand the importance of road safety – and to spread the message to their parents and extended family.
Presented by Panorama Mall and in association with Familia, our Road Safety Pledge is all about educating parents and children about the importance of safety on our roads, as well as wearing seatbelts.
And now, we can reveal our three winners!
“Y’s Road Safety Pledge campaign has been one of our most successful so far,” says Felicity Glover, the managing editor of Y Magazine.
“The quality of the entries and the innovative pledges by children were excellent. But we found that all of the entrants had one thing in common – and that is to be as safe as possible on our roads. It is very encouraging to see.”
The best three pledges are sharing a total cash prize of RO150, with RO75 going to the first prize winner, RO50 for second place and RO25 for third place. The winners will receive their prizes at a special ceremony and will be contacted by Y shortly.
A huge thanks to our sponsors – Panorama Mall and Familia – and to everybody who entered. And remember, stay safe on the roads and always wear a seatbelt!

2nd Prize Winner
Well done, Fatima! Pledging to stop your mum from eating and using the phone while driving is very admirable. You win RO50!

Great work, Muhammed. And you are right: life is too precious and never using your phone while driving is very important to stay safe on the roads. Enjoy your RO25 cash prize!
