Saris Poster Contest – Help Get Your Kids Excited About Biking!!!!

Coralville, IAJanuary 9, 2013—The Iowa Bicycle Coalition is partnering with Saris Cycling Group, a manufacturer of bicycle racks and cycling training products, to launch a poster contest to get fifth graders to think about the benefits of the bicycle. The contest is asking 5th grade students to create a poster around the theme “Bicycling makes life better.” The purpose of the contest is to promote youth riding bicycles as a way to lead an healthy lifestyle.

One winner will be selected from each state to receive a bike, bike light, and helmet. One National winner will win a trip to the 2014 National Bike Summit in Washington DC and their school will receive bicycle parking to park twenty bikes and a bike/walk tracking system called The Hub.

The contest provides a fun activity to get students excited about learning and provides teachers a creative way to introduce healthy living concepts,” said SCG Advocacy Coordinator Heather Fortune.  “This is a great way to encourage fifth graders to simply think about the places a bike can take them, for fun or for transportation.”
