​PennDOT Announces District 6 Middle School Safety Drawing Contest

Calling all Bucks County middle school students! PennDOT District 6 is asking our Philadelphia region middle school students for help in saving lives and keeping bicyclists, motorists, and pedestrians safe through their annual Middle School Safety Drawing Contest campaign, which will run through, Friday, June 12.

This year the theme is bike safety. The drawing contest is a community outreach program in which students are invited to create a drawing that promotes bicycle safety and is open to all middle school students, grades 5th to 8th, in Bucks, Philadelphia, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties.

All drawings will be entered to win the 2020 PennDOT District 6 Middle School Safety Drawing Contest and the student will be deemed PennDOT’s District 6 Middle School Safety Ambassador for 2020. The winning drawing will be featured on PennDOT’s social media accounts.

For guidelines and application, please see: 2020- PennDOT District 6- Middle School Safety Drawing Contest.pdf.

PennDOT hopes Philadelphia region middle school students can help them promote bike safety. During a time when our region is socially distancing and under a Stay-at-Home order, many bicyclists are out enjoying the outside. PennDOT hopes you can help them to remind everyone to remain safe.

If you have any questions, please contact Robyn Briggs, PennDOT Safety Press Officer at robbriggs@pa.gov or 610-205-6799.
