Deadline Extended: FFCS announces districtwide “bus safety” poster contest for students

This month, the FFCS will be holding a districtwide bus safety poster contest for ALL students to participate. Please note that this contest is OPTIONAL. The contest will allow district students to win prizes, while receiving recognition for their creativity highlighting bus safety. For this year, that theme is “Safely Rolling to My Destination.”

Each poster should be sized at 11” X 17“ or 12” X 18.” Once a student’s poster is completed and submitted, it will be voted on by members of the district’s transportation company Student Transportation of America (STA). Submitted entries are due by Tuesday, Nov. 15.

What’s the big prize for participating students?
