The annual Fifth Grade National Poster Contest is underway! BikeTexas encourages you and your schools to get your fifth graders’ creativity flowing by making a poster about this year’s theme, “Bikes Make Life Better.” Each school may submit one winning poster to the Texas contest.
The winner of the Texas contest will receive a bicycle, a helmet, and a light, and go on to the national contest for a chance at a trip to Washington, DC in 2014. The 2012 National Contest winner, Isabell Gehrt from Iowa, was in D.C. this week for the National Bike Summit. We would love to see a Texan on the stage next year! (Read more about Isabell at the Summit here.) The national winner’s school will receive bike parking for 20 bikes and a bike/walk system called The Hub, which makes it easy to add an incentive system for cycling and walking to school.
The second place winner in the Texas contest wins a helmet and a light, and the third-place winner will receive a helmet.
