Through art, students can motivate a community to make a positive change. Safe Routes to Schools’ Art Contests invite children to help showcase the positive impact of walking or rolling to school on student health, the environment, traffic and more. Through their art, students encourage others to walk, bike, scooter, or skateboard to and from school, a friend’s house, or more.

Monthly Walk & Roll Activities

Submitted by stayadmin on Mon, 11/11/2019 - 20:12

Schools that have had success with special events often expand them into regular activities that occur on a regular basis, such as "Wednesday Walk to School" or "Walk and Roll Friday." Walking school buses, bicycle trains, and park and walk activities are all ongoing encouragement activities. These weekly and monthly events help to institutionalize positive behaviors and multiply the benefits of the activities, enabling walking and biking to become the preferred mode of travel from home to school.
