Simply share a photo on your school facebook page telling us how your family parked the car and travelled actively. Include your name and use #waimovinmarch in your post and you are in to win!


The idea of “Park the Car” is described loosely to allow for students and families to share moments where you have decided to park the car/not use the car for travel and find an alternative active or more sustainable option. This does not have to be during school time, to allow for rural students and families to be able to take part, you can show us what you got up to over the weekends with friends.

How to take part:
-Schools MUST be signed up for Movin’ March in order for their student entries to be considered
-Students/Parents POST photos on their own school facebook pages or the Wairarapa Road Safety Council facebook page with a photo of what they did to “Park the Car”.
-On the POST include: Photo, a small explanation (including the student’s name entering) & #waimovinmarch
-Each post goes in the draw that is drawn on Monday 1st April.

Terms and Conditions:
-Each photo can only be submitted once & each individual student can only enter twice
-The hashtag #waimovinmarch must be used and all instructions completed correctly in order for the entry to be valid
-Draws will be done at random and the decision will be final
-Prizes cannot be exchanged for cash
-By submitting a photo on the school or WRSC facebook pages, you are consenting to the photo being used by WRSC or the school for related promotional use in other media forums such as website, newsletter and newspaper.

How the draw takes place:
