To fully capture the skill of older teenager artists also to help obtain attention, a fresh competition invites 16-to-18-year-old students to enter its 20th annual Security Belt Poster Competition for the very first time.
The annual GEICO competition () reprints and circulates the winning posters and distributes cash awards to regional and nationwide winners in the united states. The contest proceeds through January 19, 2008.
Because new teenager drivers have the best crash prices of any age group-and frequently drive unbelted-the competition encourages these to take the message even more seriously by illustrating it.
Based on the Country wide Highway Traffic Security Administration (NHTSA), 55 percent of fatally hurt passenger automobile occupants weren’t using their security belts in 2005. From 1975 through 2005, NHTSA estimations 211,128 lives were preserved by security belts.
Also not used to the national competition this season is a category for computer-generated art.
The Security Belt Poster Competition is available to public, private and home-schooled students, ages 6 through 18, by Sept. 1, 2007. The competition is split into four age ranges: six to eight 8, 9 to 11, 12 to 15, and 16 to 18, and carried out in eight areas around the united states. Entries are in the beginning judged within each generation from your same area. First-place earning posters in each generation advance towards the nationwide judging in Washington, D.C.
One grand-prize champion in each generation is going to be selected, plus a country wide winner within the computer-generated poster category, for a complete of five country wide winners.
Country wide winners could win as much as $650 for themselves and $500 for his or her school’s art program. Regional winners also make money awards.
