In celebration of NJ Bike and Walk to School Month, GMTMA announced the winners of its Safe Routes to School Bookmark Design Contest. Third through fifth graders in Mercer and Ocean County were asked to create a bookmark design with the theme “Walking and biking are fun to do. What do you do to keep it safe too? GMTMA applauds all the students that participated in the contest for their creative entries.
“The students did a fantastic job illustrating some of the important behaviors that they can do to keep safe while walking and biking” said Cheryl Kastrenakes Executive Director of GMTMA. “We continue to be impressed each year with the creative and thoughtful entries that we receive.”
The Mercer County winners are Linda Aldana, 4th Grade, P.J. Hill Elementary School in Trenton and Joshua Barrett, 5th, Yardville Heights Elementary School, Hamilton.
The Ocean County winners are Adriel Estrada, 5th Grade, Lakehurst Elementary School and Anthony Scalzullo, 5th Grade, Hooper Ave Elementary, Toms River.
Each winner receives a $50 gift card and have their bookmarks professionally printed. The winning bookmarks are being distributed at many Mercer and Ocean County schools and libraries.
We would like to thank all participants, schools, teachers, and libraries who help make this contest possible every year.
Congratulations to all the winners!
