Work Zone Safety Poster Contest Winners

Work Zone Safety Poster Contest Winners

Apr 18, 2018

Congratulations to the winners of the Second Annual Work Zone Safety Poster Contest! Sponsored by KCRC and the City of Kentwood, the poster contest invited third-grade students from across the county to design a “caution sign” focusing on one of the following safety tips for driving through a work zone:

  • Avoid distractions. Dedicate your full attention to driving. Avoid using a phone or changing the radio station.
  • Pay attention to directions. Follow directions from workzone flaggers and pay attention to warnings posted on work zone signs.
  • Keep an eye out. Watch for construction workers and their equipment. Also, stay alert to the vehicles around you.

Over 100 entries were submitted and all will be displayed at the APWA Family Open House event on May 16 at Kentwood Public Works. The artwork is also used throughout the year on social media and at public engagements to promote safe driving practices.
