Walk and Roll Air Quality Art Contest Winners to be honored at December TCAG Board Meeting

The Walk and Roll Air Quality Art Contest was held for area students to send in their creative ideas for how to keep our region’s air clean. The contest was held from September to November 10th and coincided with National Walk and Roll Day on October 4th of this year.

 

The contest aims to get children and youth thinking creatively about ways to improve air quality by making clean transportation choices and awards the chosen winners with a brand new bike and helmet to take home. TCAG received many great and creative ideas about how we can improve air quality from our region’s students. There were five winners chosen for their art and are listed below.

Juan Torres – Grade 8, Washington Intermediate School – Dinuba
