Four Meadow School students took home top honors in the state 2017 School Bus Safety Poster Contest.
Meadow students Adam Miller, Dayla White, Daniella Bazalar, and Kaimen Williams all placed in the 6-8 grade category.
Miller, a seventh grade student, won first place. White, a seventh grade student, won second place. Bazalar, an eighth grade student, won third place. Williams, a seventh grade student, won fourth place.
The statewide poster competition is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and is part of a national competition held by the National School Bus Safety Week (NSBSW) Committee. The winners are featured on the state’s website, and the top poster from each division is submitted for the national competition. The winning poster in the national competition will be used to promote National School Bus Safety Week in October 2018.
Any student in a North Carolina Public School was eligible to enter the contest. The posters had to illustrate the theme and include its slogan, which was “My Driver – My Safety Hero!”
The Meadow students were assisted in submitting their posters to the contest by their art teacher, Johni Penny.
The statewide competition posters were judged by participants from around the state that attended the North Carolina Pupil Transportation Association (NCPTA) Conference held in Sunset Beach this year.
All of the winning entries are posted on the NC School Bus Safety webpage for everyone to view.
