This year, not only did the three winners of the WalkSafe Statewide Poster Contest come from Orange County, they also came from one school: Dommerich Elementary. Safe to say that they’re doing something right when it comes to talking about safe biking and walking.
“Dommerich — they just do a fantastic job of getting all of their students involved and their parents involved,” Barbara Giles, program manager of Bike/Walk Central Florida, told the Orange Observer. “They have walking school bus at their school, and are very much behind safety and healthy walking/bicycling lifestyles.”
Congratulations to the Max, Lauren and Sydney for their winning posters, and shout out to all three of you for walking the walk – practicing safe biking and walking every day.
