Overview of Student Yard Sign Design Contest
The Massachusetts Safe Routes to School’s Yard Sign Design Contest is a way for students to use their creativity to help promote safe roads for cyclists and pedestrians in their communities.
Here’s how: Students will create and submit a design for a yard sign that stresses the importance of anti-idling around school. The focus should be on reducing pollution and making a healthier environment around the school by encouraging parents and caregivers to turn off vehicle engines when waiting to drop off or pick up a child at school. Signs may be hand drawn or created digitally. Four winners will be chosen and the winning designs will be made into yard signs for distribution to our partner schools around the Commonwealth.
