Megan Rust, a 5th-grade student at River Ridge Elementary School (Kenton County), has been named a winner in the 2016 National School Bus Safety Poster Contest.
Rust won the computer assisted division, one of six divisions in the contest sponsored by the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT). She receives $50 from NAPT.
The contest was open to all elementary and middle school students and to high school students in special education and computer-aided drawing programs.
Thousands of school districts in more than 40 states participate in local and state competitions to select art work that depicts school bus safety-related themes and encourages and promotes school bus safety. The contest serves as the centerpiece of National School Bus Safety Week, and winning posters are used to promote safer school transportation.
Winners were chosen during the NAPT conference and trade show based on their safety impact, originality, artistic quality and visual impact. This year’s contest theme was “#Stop on Red!”
