I thought I had this one tied up, until I realized it was for people of elementary school age. Oh well. If your child is of that age, he or she can enter the fifth annual ‘Bridging Futures’ contest, brought to you by the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition and the Washington State Department of Transportation.
The goal is to educate children about issues surrounding wildlife and our roads, such as the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project that will make the road safer for people and wildlife (and bigfoot? No, that’s just my little joke) by including two wildlife overpasses and numerous underpasses.
Students are asked to produce drawings that show how we can work to benefit both animals and people in transportation planning and include a written description of their thoughts on the topic.
The winner(s) will have their drawing made into billboards. All entries must be postmarked no later than April 20. Here’s more info and the rules. So get those kids drawing. And if they do enter this contest, drop us a line, maybe we can post their work on here too.
