Bike Safety Poster Contest Returns

May is National Bike Month and Decatur Safe Routes to School invites children in participating schools to enter Decatur’s second annual Bike to School Month poster contest.

We invite children in grades k – 8 to design a poster illustrating bike safety. For example, the poster could show a child using hand signals, or it could stress the importance of wearing a helmet. Creativity is encouraged!

A panel of judges will select four winners who will receive a gift certificate from Bicycle South, the contest sponsor. Judging will be based on creativity, inclusion of bike safety theme, and originality. Age and grade will play a factor in the judging. The winning posters will be made into posters to be displayed throughout the City during May. Winners will also be recognized at the City Commission meeting in May and poster art will be featured in the May Decatur FOCUS magazine.

Deadline is March 10. Entries are to be turned in at the student’s school by 3 pm.

For more information on how to enter and the registration form please visit decaturga.com/srts or contact Cheryl.Burnette@decaturga.com. Entry forms will also be available at each participating school.

Here are last year’s winning posters…..
