Hunter’s poster will be judged nationally at the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Conference held at the end of October in Kansas City. 

Additionally, Coram Elementary School third-grader Oliver Brown and fifth-grade student Eric Heinz earned second place in the competition.

Prizes were awarded for the first, second and third place in each division.

The poster contest is the centerpiece of National School Bus Safety Week. Thousands of school districts in over 40 states participate in local and state-level competitions to select artwork that depicts school bus safety-related themes to encourage and promote school bus safety. The winning posters are used to promote safer school transportation for everyone.
