The Kansas Department of Transportation recently announced the winners of their “Put the Brakes on Fatalities” poster contest, in which kids ages 5 through 13 were invited to create artwork on the theme of traffic safety.
Three winners — one in each age category: 5-7, 8-10, and 11-13 — were selected in each of six Kansas regions, and they each received a free bicycle and helmet. Three statewide winners (one in each age category) received a family vacation at select destinations in Kansas.
In addition to the posters related to bicycle safety shown below, kids created artwork raising awareness on topics such as speeding, pedestrian safety, and driving while distracted.
Kassie Zimmer, Age 5, LaCrosse, KS
Allen Su, Age 7, Manhattan, KS
Catlin Blomenkamp, Age 7, Junction City, KS
Congratulations to the winners!
