Teens invited to enter safe driving poster contest

High school students in Clackamas County are invited to participate in the Posters and Coasters Safe Driving Media contest. Sponsored by Clackamas County Safe Communities, the goal of the contest is for students to create artwork 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 (County) high school students are invited to create their own safe driving media to share with their peers and the community.”

Contest details are available online at clackamassafecommunities.org. Submissions 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. Prizes will be given for the top three entries.

Entries must be submitted by Tuesday.

They can be mailed to Safe Communities, Department of Transportation-Engineering, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City, OR, 97045 or emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
