The Connecticut Transportation Institute is holding their fifth annual Roadway Safety Poster Contest for Children with support from agencies and organizations around the state. They want to make roadway safety a priority and are asking the children of Connecticut to help promote roadway safety through art.
The contest is for children in grades K-6 and will have winners in multiple groups: grades K-1, 2-4, and 5-6. They are looking for creative posters illustrating roadway safety concepts from a child’s point of view. This year, along with the packet, there is also a short animated video showing children how to be safe on the roadway as pedestrians, bicyclists and passengers in a car.
Submissions will be accepted until February 20th. Winners will receive prizes and awards at the Work Zone Safety Week Press Conference held in March 2015. Prizes include Kindle Fire HD 7s for winners and gift cards and a variety of goodies for runner-ups.
You can also support this program by passing the information along to co-workers and taking it home so your children can participate. Posters are not required to be submitted by schools.
