WWSF invites you to use and download the 2011 campaign poster, banners and logo and grants you the right to add your own logo on the poster provided that you do not remove the WWSF logos. WWSF will offer an annual Prize for innovative prevention activities and invites you to send your reports with photos and campaign reports by 15 February in order to be included in the selection process.
