The WalkSafe Art Contest encourages young people to think creatively about how redesigning our streets can increase safety for people walking.
Previously known as the WalkSafe Poster Contest, our updated Art Contest opens up the contest to youth-created craft projects that tackle the critical issues facing street safety today. Posters are also still accepted, but feel free to make a mini replica of your neighborhood with scrap cardboard and milk cartons too!
This year, we encourage all kids to express how the streets in their neighborhood or around their school could be redesigned for their safety and the safety of others walking. Feel free to take inspiration from Lesson 5 from our WalkSafe At Home module, or from safe street designs shown online.
The Contest is open to both parents and teachers throughout Florida, as part of our WalkSafe Curriculum activities or our At Home Virtual Education module. Parents may submit a single craft project per child, while teachers at participating schools must choose a single craft project per grade level (K-1st, 2-3rd, 4-5th) to submit on behalf of their class.
