Students Design Posters to Raise Awareness for Bus Safety

Recently, the New York Association for Pupil Transportation (NYAPT) held a poster design contest to help raise awareness for school bus safety. The theme of this year’s competition was “Red Light Means STOP!” in accordance with the district’s (and state’s) increased focus on cracking down on motorists who attempt to pass stopped school bus signs.

Several students from the LaFayette Central School District entered the competition, and placed in the regional (Central New York) competition! The next step will be the statewide judging, which will take place this July during the NYAPT summer conference.

Congratulations to this year’s winners! Click on any image to enlarge it.
