2017 Roadway Safety Poster Contest Winner Announced

Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Roadway Safety Poster Contest!

2017.k-1 win

Juliet Caulfield, K-1 Winner

Earlier this year the Connecticut Technology Transfer Center asked students from around the state to help promote roadway safety through art. After visiting the PBS Kids’ Ruff Ruffman Driving website (a site to access resources including games and surveys to encourage kids to become better passengers and to play an active role in helping their parents to keep their eyes on the road), students in grades K-6 submitted their posters designs depicting how to be safe as a pedestrian, bicyclists, or driver. Submitted entries were reviewed by a panel of roadway safety professionals from the Connecticut Department of Transportation, and a winner and honorable mention were selected for three age categories: K-1st graded, 2nd-4th grade and 5th-6th grade.


Gavin Foran, 2-4 Winner

Monday, April 3rd, the three winners and three honorable mentions were invited to attend the Connecticut Work Zone Safety Press Conference held at the Newington Department of Transportation building. There, the students were presented with ribbons and gift baskets to honor their artistic achievements.

As a special surprise police officers and public works professionals from each of the student’s respective hometowns were invited to attend and give their congratulations.

Job well done, kids!
