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.
