State Poster Contest Winners and Vote for the National Winner

Thank you to everyone around the state who participated in the 2014 Washington State 5th Grade Bicycle Poster Contest! Over 100 students participated creating beautiful and inspiring posters. We are pleased to present the state poster contest winners.

The 2014 Washington State 5th Grade Bicycle Poster Winner is Ashley Vaile from Tukes Valley Middle School in Battle Ground, WA.

1st Place - Ashley - Battle Ground

Her parents described her thorough process of thinking through and practicing the facial expression, the type of trees to ride through, and the feel to convey the “simple pleasures of a bike ride.” For all her hard work and delightful illustration, Ashley wins a bike, light, helmet, LED reflective strap, membership to Washington Bikes, and her poster will be featured on a set of notecards produced by Washington Bikes.

Ashley’s poster now is entered into the national contest! Between April 10th and 15th, anyone can vote on Saris Cycling Racks’ Facebook page for the national winner. If Ashley wins, her and a parent get to go to the National Bike Summit in Washington, DC in 2015 and Battle Ground wins a bicycle rack and HUB encouragement system from Saris.

2nd Place for Washington State goes to Gianna Waleske of Ft. Colville Elementary in Colville, WA.
