Public works and road agencies throughout Kent County are working together for the sixth annual Work Zone Safety Poster Contest for third-grade students. From now through May 3, third graders are invited to submit a caution sign that helps spread an important safety tip for those traveling through a work zone. The poster contest aligns with National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 11 to 15, and supports this year’s theme, “Work Zones Are a Sign to Slow Down.”
The poster contest’s winning entries will be announced during Public Works Week, May 15 to 21, and will be used by the local agencies on various outreach platforms to promote work zone safety.
Teachers and families can find details about the contest, including poster templates, on the Kent County Road Commission's website.
