Connecticut Technology Transfer Center - 2015 Roadway Safety Poster Contest for Children
{Connecticut Technology Transfer Center Logo}
Due to the recent snow days and some schools having February break, we are extending the deadline for the Roadway Safety Poster Contest to Wednesday 2/25. All posters post-marked by 2/25/2015 will be in the running! Below, please find information about how to participate.
The Connecticut Technology Transfer Center (T2 Center) at UCONN, with support from agencies and organizations around the state, is holding the fifth annual Connecticut Roadway Safety Poster Contest for Children. We want to make roadway safety a priority and are asking the children of Connecticut to help promote roadway safety through art.

Our theme, “Every Life Counts in Connecticut”, focuses on the fact that all of Connecticut’s road users deserve safe and efficient roadways and that those people who work to maintain our roadways deserve a safe workplace. It also means that we are all responsible for doing our part to make those roadways safe.

Students in grades K-6 are invited to submit their original impressions of roadway safety. Students should depict those concepts and actions they think are vital to improving roadway safety; what drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists can do to protect their lives and the lives of those working on the road. Some examples of these concepts are: drive the speed limit, slow down in work zones, don’t be a distracted driver, and follow all road signs.
The contest categories are K-1st grade, 2nd – 4th grade and 5th – 6th grade. Posters should be submitted to the UCONN T2 Center by February 20, 2015. Once the entries are received, they will be voted on by a panel of roadway safety professionals.
The top posters in each category will receive their awards and prizes at an award ceremony held in conjunction with Work Zone Safety Week during March 2015. All winners will be featured on the home page of the UCONN T2 Center’s website. Winners will be notified in writing by March 9, 2015.
Full details, instructions, release form and samples are available in the the following downloadable form.
