This year we had the highest amount of submissions ever, at 350. 6 winners were selected, scored by our Active Transportation Advisory Committee and TCAG employees. The drawings delivered messages of responsible transportation choices, including walking, skateboarding, biking, and much more. The goal of the contest is to create an air quality awareness to help make Tulare County air more breathable for a brighter future. The program was made possible from a Caltrans grant called “Bike and Stride,” which has allowed outreach to thousands of kids across the county, delivering a message that biking is cool, and reminding kids that safety is number one. Bikes were made possible via donations from Eisen-Letunic, Quad-Knopf, Nelson-Nygaard, Southwest Strategies, Southern Sierra Cyclists, with local discounts provided by Visalia Cyclery and Cyclery Express.
Congratulations to our winners! Brisa Romero, Kortney Hamilton, Seneca Sowers, Kailani Minugh, Lucy Hiatt, and Alice Warner.
Runner ups have been selected to be featured at the ImagineU Museum in downtown Visalia, and possibly other venues. More information will be posted on our homepage if other venues become available.
