MCDOT Sponsoring Safe Routes to School Contest to Promote Walk to School Day

To promote Walk to School Day on October 7, Montgomery County Department of Transportation is hosting a Safe Routes to School Contest from September 28 through October 16. Students can participate by providing their name, parent or student email address, and school name on the redesigned Safe Routes to School website. Students will earn extra entries by taking photos of themselves walking to school and posting them on Twitter and/or Instagram using the hashtag #walk2schoolMOCO. Four student winners will receive $50 Chipotle gift cards. The principal from the school that receives the most contest entries will receive an office lunch party (rewarded as a $100 Visa gift card), a feature in a Montgomery County newsletter, and a certificate of recognition from Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett.
