SARIS’S NATIONAL POSTER CONTEST
Missouri’s State Contest Coordinator • St. Louis BWorks
St. Louis BWorks is partnering with Saris Cycling Group, a US manufacturer of bicycle racks and cycling training products, to organize the 4th Annual 5th Grade National Poster Contest.
The contest is asking 5th grade students to create a poster around the famous John F. Kennedy quote, “Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.” The purpose of the contest is to promote youth riding bicycles as a way to lead a healthy lifestyle.
One first place winner will be selected from Missouri to receive a bicycle, bike light, and helmet. Missouri will also have second and third place winners, receiving a helmet and light and helmet, respectively. Posters are due March 7. One National winner will win a trip to the 2015 National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C. and their school will receive bicycle parking to park twenty bikes and a bike/walk tracking system called The Hub.
Classes from which 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners are selected will receive bicycle bells and lights, compliments of St. Louis BWorks, for the entire class.
