Kansas children can win prizes and learn about traffic safety by participating in poster and video contests as part of the annual Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day safety campaign.
The poster contest is for children ages 5 to 13, with three statewide winners each receiving a Kindle Fire Tablet and case from the Kansas Turnpike Authority; a $50 gift card from Walmart; a $50 Amazon gift card from the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association of Kansas; and movie passes from AAA Kansas.
A total of 18 regional winners in the six regions and age groups (age 5 to 7, 8 to 10 and 11 to 13) will receive a bicycle and helmet from Safe Kids Kansas. Poster entries must be postmarked by Sept. 22.
The video contest is for teens in grades 8 to 12. Prizes include an iPad, a Go Pro and a DJI Osmo camera, and the school of the grand prize winner will receive $500 for its booster club. Video entries must be posted by 11:59 p.m. Sept. 24.
