Darryl Haden, Chief Executive of Kent FA, commented: “By inviting children to take part in this competition, we are providing them with a platform to encourage others to be respectful and create a positive environment for young people when playing football.
“Unfortunately, since the return of football we have keen a spike in discipline reports including abuse towards match officials, and these posters will spur on others to help create a positive culture when people are at matches. We are really excited to see what posters young people create."
A shortlist will be developed before the winner is announced early in July 2021.
