Safety Update

Anite-Distracted Driving Logo Design Challenge!

Do you or your kids enjoy being creative?! If so, design and submit an anti-distracted driving themed logo by September 14th for a chance to win a pair of Apple AirPods! Click Here to download the contest flyer.

The Georgia ITE Safety Committee is preparing materials that will be used as part of our Section’s distracted driving service project, which was awarded funding from SDITE. The service project will target elementary school-aged children to teach them about the risks of distracted driving. The hope is students will then pass the information along to the adults in their lives, a strategy that has shown to be a successful as part of the Safe Routes to School program. To reinforce the messaging, themed giveaways will be provided as part of the outreach events and the winning logo will be used on the giveaways! Please pass the flyer/information along to anyone who may be interested. All questions and entries should be submitted to Sam Harris ([email protected]). We look forward to seeing your creative, fun, and engaging designs!

You do not have to be a Georgia ITE member to participate in this contest. For more information, please see our event page HERE.
