This year’s Poster Program will be conducted a little differently compared to the past. The program will continue its primary aim of reducing traffic and pedestrian crashes, one of the leading causes of death of children ages 3 to 14.
Students of all ages illustrate a selected traffic safety topic. AAA Hudson Valley asks that Teachers/Caregivers take a picture of the student’s poster and email it to: Trafficsafety@aaahv.com. Please include the student’s name, grade, school, teacher or caregiver’s name and email address.
Older students are invited to compete for topics that are relevant to novice driver safety. This program allows youth to become creative in topic design, while striving to create memorable entries, leading others to safety through example and enthusiasm.

All participants will receive a token of appreciation. We will also be awarding Visa Gift Cards to winners. There will not be a ceremony for the winners this year. Prizes will be mailed directly to the winning students.
Entries should be submitted by taking a picture of the paper posters and emailing them in a .jpg or .png format to: by the deadline of April 30, 2021
For all submissions, please include: Student Name, Grade, School Name, Teacher/Caregiver Name and Email Address.
Digital submissions must be original, and not copied from the Internet. Pre-printed, manufactured, copyrighted or trademarked names, logos, etc. are unacceptable on both illustrated and digital/graphic art posters and will be eliminated.
All artwork needs to illustrate the topic chosen. Make sure the text is spelled correctly, all posters with incorrect spelling will not be eligible for prizes.
