We are teaming up with Saris Cycling Group, a US manufacturer of bicycle racks and cycling training products, to organize the 4th Annual Fifth Grade National Bicycle Poster Contest. The contest asks 5th grade students to create a poster around the famous John F. Kennedy quote, “Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.”
Each participating school selects their own winner to be submitted to the State Contest. Submissions from the schools are due March 7th. The state winner will be entered into the national contest.
The first place poster from Washington will win a bike, helmet, and light! There are also prizes for the winner from each school. The top 5 posters will be featured in a set of greeting cards produced by Washington Bikes. The national winner receives a trip to Washington D.C. for the 2015 National Bike Summit, and their school wins bike parking and bike encouragement equipment. Go here for a full list of the prizes and the contest rules.
In 2013, over 30 students from 5 schools participated in the contest. The community of Port Angeles and students across Washington rallied to support the Washington State winning poster by Ruby. This year we hope to see more than 15 schools participate. If you are interested in having your school participate in the contest, email Seth@WABikes.org.
