The Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) Program is happy to announce Creation for Transportation: Art for Walking, Bicycling, Carpooling and Taking Transit. Alameda County is inviting high school students to make and submit a creative art piece for this new event from February 1-26 in order to encourage students to explore different transportation choices that reduce their carbon footprint, while complying with state-wide stay at home orders. It is an engaging and fun way to channel their creative expression and be thoughtful about the various impacts of transportation choices.
Students who submit an eligible entry will be entered to win incentives that will be awarded for a select number of exceptional art projects.
Art can be created in any medium, and for contest purposes, “transportation impacts” highlighted through the artwork may include air quality, safety, health, climate change, community, and well-being. Students who submit an eligible entry to https://tinyurl.com/Creation4Transportation between February 1-26 will be entered to win incentives that will be awarded for a select number of exceptional art projects.
Program staff will review all submissions and select eligible winners, and the SR2S Program will exhibit featured submissions on the Safe Routes to School’s Program social media: SR2S Facebook and SR2S Twitter.
Creation for Transportation reflects the Program’s adjustments to produce customized encouragement events that comply with COVID-19-related shelter-in-place orders. To learn more, please visit the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools Program Creation for Transportation webpage.
