SCHOOL BUS POSTER SAFETY CONTEST - 2021 HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
The Poster Contest is a program in which students are engaged in designing poster art that portrays a nationally-determined theme about school bus safety. Posters must be judged at the local/chapter level before being reviewed by the state association and the winners then sent on to the national competition. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Poster Contest for 2021 has been cancelled. We look forward to this Contest being resumed in 2022.
