The AAA Traffic Safety Poster Program Contest encourages creativity, while providing a unique opportunity for students to communicate traffic safety messages to their peers. The program allows young people to use their imagination and artistic talents to create an original slogan and poster design or public service announcement (PSA) in a selected safety category.
In this year's contest, the Junior High category entries illustrated how to be a good passenger through concepts including buckling up, not distracting the driver, and the dangers of using a cell phone or changing the radio/CD while driving.
