Three elementary students and one middle school student received recognition for their entries to the State School Bus Safety Poster Contest, with one of them being named a state winner.
The theme for this year’s contest was “At My Stop You Stop,” which coincided with the state’s efforts to reduce the number of vehicles illegally passing buses in our communities. Four local winners were chosen from different grade-level divisions, and their entries were submitted to the state competition. The committee used a blind judging process so that no one would know the name or school attached to the entries.
The winners were:
· Trevor Gottschalk, Springdale Elementary School
· Rhys Howell, Carter Elementary School
· Zemmie Mullis, Springdale Elementary School
