FFCS announces districtwide “bus safety” poster contest; NEW PRIZES ANNOUNCED

Beginning in October, the FFCS will be holding a districtwide bus safety poster contest for ALL students to participate. The contest will allow district students to have an opportunity to win prizes while receiving recognition for their creativity highlighting bus safety. For this year, that theme is “Driving Safely Into the Future.” Participating students will be creating a poster that best fits that theme for this year’s contest.

Once their poster is completed and submitted, it will be voted on by members of the district’s transportation company STA. Submitted entries are due by Monday, December 4. Winners are to be announced during morning announcements on December 15.
