Everyone who uses the roads has a role to play in safety. This includes large trucks and buses, cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces the 2019 Road Safety Art Contest, an annual coloring contest that encourages children in kindergarten through sixth grade (ages 5-12) use their creativity and talent to raise awareness of how to stay safe on the roads.
The winning artwork will best show that everyone who uses the roads has a role to play in safety. This includes big trucks and buses, cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.
The Road Safety Partnership will award one GRAND PRIZE and five HONORABLE MENTION winners for each of two categories:
- Category A: Artists in kindergarten through second grade, as of June 7, 2019.
- Category B: Artists in third through sixth grades, as of June 7, 2019.
All 12 winners will receive a framed copy of their artwork and a certificate of recognition. Each winner’s artwork, name, age and grade will also be featured in a 2020 calendar, a press release, highlighted on multiple social media sites, and featured on the FMCSA website.
Contest winners will be announced in Fall 2019.
Entry deadline is June 7, 2019. Winners will be notified after judging. Contest winners will be officially announced via the FMCSA website and social media in fall 2019.
Children in kindergarten through sixth grade (ages 5-12) are eligible. Only one entry per child.
The child must produce the artwork without assistance from anyone else. The entry must be original and not a copy of another work.
