2020 poster contest winners announced

This year for Bike to Anywhere Day, Minnesota Safe Routes to School held the fifth annual Bike to School Day Poster Contest.

The contest asked students to create a poster that shows how bicycling makes them feel. We received entries from around the state, and while the decision making process was tough, the review committee looked for empowering messaging, good design and outside the box thinking.

Congratulations to our winners below, and thank you to everyone for participating in our poster contest!
