The Connecticut Technology Transfer Center (T2 Center) at UCONN and the CT Department of Transportation are holding the second 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.
This year’s 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 impressions of roadway safety. Students should depict those concepts and actions they think are vital to improving roadway safety; what drivers and passengers 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.
