Street Smarts poster contest under way

From page A9 | October 30, 2012 |

It’s that time of year again — the city of Davis Street Smarts program invites children in grades K-6 to design a traffic safety poster for the annual Street Smarts Traffic Safety Poster Contest. New this year: Winning artwork will be featured on special-edition Street Smarts bookmarks that will be available at downtown Davis stores, as well as schools and libraries.

There also will be the usual prizes for the best entries, and all entered artwork will be displayed at a Street Smarts Art Show at the Davis Art Center, Dec. 7-15.

This year’s poster themes are:

* Safe helmet use for kids and adults;

* Safe bicycle riding (always follow the rules of the road);

* Safe driving (no phoning, texting or speeding); and

* Safe street crossing (stop, look left/right/left, then cross, and always pay attention).

Prizes will be awarded in two age groups: grades K-3 and 4-6.

Find rules, tips and judging criteria and download an entry form at www.street-smarts.cityofdavis.org.

Submissions should be no larger than 11-by-17-inches and students should write their name, grade, teacher and school on the back of their artwork. Entries should be mailed or delivered to the city of Davis Public Works Department, City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd., by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Davis Art Center from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7.

For more information, contact the street smarts coordinator at rhartsough@cityofdavis.org or 530-757-5640.
