About the Contest

The WalkSafe Poster Contest offers schools throughout Florida the opportunity to showcase the creative talents of their students, as an extension of our Day 3 poster contest activity.

Participating schools must collect all submitted posters and sort them by grade level (K-1st, 2-3rd, 4-5th). One poster from each of these three grade categories (a total of three posters) can be selected by the school, and sent to the WalkSafe Program office to be entered into the WalkSafe Poster Contest.

At the end of the submission period, WalkSafe will select one winner (per grade category) per county. These countywide winners will become the finalists to be entered into the Statewide Poster Contest. One poster will be selected from each of the grade categories to be the Statewide winners for the school year.
