I guess you have to edit the template, it isn't a phpBB feature AFAIK.
PS: global announcements are another thing. Maybe you want them?

The yellow box you see in the top with "Forum rules" is a feature to list or to link the forum rules on the current forum, not a global announcement :P

Global announcement and the Forum rules are as different as chalk and cheese.

Forum rules: You don't have to edit anything. Go in ACP to the edit page the forums you want, and simly write something in the textfield "Forum rules". ;) But you can't define them right in the forum.
