Many congratulations to Uzziel Rangel of Bonner Elementary in Tyler, the statewide winner of the Saris 2015 Fifth Grade National Poster Contest.
Uzziel and his father put his new bicycle together this week. George Brigman, Uzziel’s teacher, says, “Uzziel Rangel is so excited about winning in the Saris Bike Poster contest. He was talking about how he would protect it – try to keep from getting any scratches and keep it beside his bed. Uzziel tries his best all the time and has great manners.”
According to Mr. Brigman, all of his students enjoy Saris’ annual contest: “Bonner does have great artists who try their best. This is a contest that all the fifth graders look forward too.”
Thank you to all the teachers in Texas who submitted posters to the Saris 2015 Fifth Grade National Poster Contest! See all the Texas posters here, and check back soon to hear more about the second and third place winners!
Thank you Saris Parking, maker of bicycle parking systems and racks for hosting the contest for the fifth year. In their words, “Our #longfortheride campaign blossomed from our own admiration and commitment to cycling in the United States. Riding a bike is not only good for the soul, it benefits the health, wellness, safety and vitality of a community. What better way to display the bicycle’s importance than by asking kids to show us what they love about the bicycle. There’s just something inexplicable that happens each time you reach for the handlebars. And as they say, a picture is worth 1,000 words.”
