2017 Poster Contest Winners Announced

This year for Bike to School Day, Minnesota Safe Routes to School held the second annual Bike to School Day Poster Contest, sponsored by the Minnesota Safe Routes to School, Quality Bicycle Products and Dero. The contest asked students to create a poster that shows how bicycling makes them feel. We received over 400 entries from around the state, and while the decision making process was tough, the review committee looked for empowering messaging, good design and outside of the box thinking. Congratulations to our winners below, and thank you to everyone for participating in our poster contest!

(Poster contest winners will receive their choice of several Dero products (including a bike rack, public bike pump, and more) for placement at their school.)
