The Connecticut Technology Transfer Center at the University of Connecticut is very pleased to host the first Connecticut Roadway Safety poster contest for grades K-6.
Each year, approximately 720 people lose their lives in work zone accidents — most of them drivers. Students are encouraged to take time to recognize the reasons work is undertaken, the type of jobs performed by roadway workers, and the families, loved ones, community responsibilities and other roles performed by these men and women, who have some of the most dangerous jobs in America.
Grades K-1 Grades 2-4 Grades 5-6
A winner in each category will win a basket of Safety Goodies including Bike Helmets.
The posters will be displayed at the Connecticut DOT Work Zone Safety Press Conference held in the spring.
To be eligible for the contest, all posters must be postmarked by January 28, 2011.
