Students invited to enter safe driving contest

High school students in Clackamas County are invited to participate in the Posters and Coasters Safe Driving Media Contest. The goal of the contest, sponsored by Clackamas County Safe Communities, is for students to create art work or written messages that promote safe driving to reach out to others in the community.

Patty McMillan, Clackamas County Safe Communities Program coordinator, said, “Traditionally, driver’s education has come from parents, educators and safety professionals. Now, Clackamas high school students are invited to create their own safe driving media to share with their peers and the community.”

Entries must be submitted by April 15.

By mail: Safe Communities, Department of Transportation — Engineering, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City 97045

Contest details are available at ClackamasSafeCommunities.org. Questions should be directed to McMillan at 503-742-4661 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Student art work or written messages should be based on risk factors such as speed, distracted driving or impaired driving; or on prevention strategies such as seat-belt use, parent support or graduated driver licenses. Positive, uplifting messages are encouraged to reflect the need to drive with respect and courtesy.

Entries will be judged on creativity, message impact and promotional appeal, and will all be eligible to be used for outreach.

The students who create the top three entries will each win a gift certificate from Clackamas Town Center ($300 for first place, $200 for second place and $100 for third place).

The Safe Driving Media Contest is sponsored by Clackamas County Safe Communities, Clackamas Town Center and State Farm Insurance.
