By looking at all the entries we could see that tinsel was quite popular & made the "wheels" (bikes & scooters) shiny. A great idea was to use lots of decorations.

Cohen C. & Kyal wrote about organising the event & judging: We talked it through & split our Team into 2 teams of 3 for judging (Junior & Middle/Senior.) It was tricky judging but also fun. It was also cool to look at all the beautiful bikes/scooters/helmets. We would love to do it again. We would like to see more getting involved. We loved how those who participated used creativity.

Cohen Mc. sums up the day for us: The best thing I loved was seeing the kids' helmets & how they (helmets) were also decorated. The not so good thing was when I had to judge the bikes & scooters because they were all so fantastic. I think we could make an event like this better if we encouraged more riders to join us.

Mentor's note: we hope to have some photos for you soon of some of the wonderfully decorated wheels!

Hi Angelina, Summer, Cohen, Kyal and of course Mrs Yates! Thanks for filling us in on your Decorate Your Wheels comp. It is always a good sign when the only negative is that the entries were all too good! Your competition has earned you 20 points, plus 10 for sharing so many thoughts and another 5 for getting the youth perspective out there. Looking forward to seeing those photos!
