Three LCSD Students Advance to State Bus Safety Poster Contest
Thursday, May 19, 2016
Posters created by Elmcrest Elementary third-grader Senad Selimovic, EE sixth-grader Meliha Selimovic and Morgan Road Elementary sixth-grader Tyler Heron recently were selected as first place winners at the regional level of the 2016 National School Bus Safety Poster Contest. The Central New York Association for Pupil Transportation sponsored the regional contest.
The three posters will now advance to the state level of the poster contest and judging will take place during the New York Association for Pupil Transportation’s annual conference to be held in Albany this July.
Each year during the month of March, Liverpool Central School District bus drivers introduce the poster contest and its rules to students during their spring emergency bus drills. At the beginning of May, LCSD Transportation Center staff members judge the posters submitted by students.
