What is the Pedestrian Safety Art Contest?

Montgomery County Safe Routes to School Program is hosting its annual Pedestrian Safety Art Contest to raise awareness about pedestrian safety with school aged children. Students are encouraged to use their creative thinking and unique artwork to educate themselves and others about pedestrian safety. The goal of the contest is to educate students about this important topic and encourage them to practice safe behaviors while walking to and from school. Winning artwork should reflect the best ways to stay safe and things to avoid while walking. It should also highlight road safety measures.

What is a pedestrian? Why is pedestrian safety important?

A pedestrian is anyone who is walking on a road or developed area. Anyone traveling on foot is considered a pedestrian. If you walk to school, to the store, the park, or to a friend's house you are a pedestrian too! Pedestrians are encouraged to make safe choices while walking, such as using the crosswalk, looking 3 ways before crossing, waiting for the walk signal and wearing bright and reflective clothing at night. Practicing safe behavior while walking can save your life and have a positive impact impact on safety in your community.
