Road Safety Art Contest


Drum Roll Please: Here Are the 2021 Road Safety Art Contest Winners 

The 2021 Road Safety Art Contest received many great submissions that showed us the importance of road safety. Check out the winning artwork below and post this video on social media to help others learn about sharing the road safely with large trucks and buses.

Everyone on our roads has a responsibility to help keep each other safe. The annual FMCSA Road Safety Art Contest invites students to use their creativity to raise awareness of how to stay safe on the road, particularly when driving, biking, or walking around large trucks and buses. 

This year, the contest expanded to include students in grades K-12, with new submission categories including digital art, craft, video, and photography. 

Next year’s contest opens in spring 2022. Check back for contest and entry form updates!
