The 2011 Street Smarts Traffic Safety poster contest is under way.
Students in grades K-6 have until Thursday, Nov. 10, to produce a poster about one of four themes: safe helmet use, safe bicycle riding, safe driving or safe street crossing.
Grand prize winners in each category — grades K-3 and 4-6 — will win a Nintendo Wii game system. Second- and third-place winners in each age group will receive Alphabet Moon gift cards of $75 or $50. Other prizes include bike helmets, karate lessons, ice cream and sports gear.
Winners will be announced during a ceremony at 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St. All artwork submitted for the contest will be on display at the Art Center until Dec. 19.
All entries to this year’s contest must be mailed or hand-delivered to the city of Davis Public Works Administration Building, 1717 Fifth St., by 5 p.m. Nov. 10.
