The winning artwork of the 12 students will be showcased in the U.S. Department of Transportation headquarters building in Washington, D.C., as well as featured in the 2023 Road Safety Student Art calendar that will be available later this year.
The contest is sponsored under FMCSA’s Our Roads, Our Safety Partnership, which comprises more than 31 governmental, safety, industry, and private organizations. The young artists call on commercial truck and bus operators to do their part for safety, while also reminding everyone to give large commercial motor vehicles extra room to maneuver.
The art contest winners are announced this week as truck drivers throughout the country are being honored during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week for their contributions to keeping the economy moving and safely delivering essential goods.
This week is a dedicated time for the public and CMV community to celebrate and recognize their hard work and commitment to one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. With fatal crashes on America’s roadways rising, increasing road safety awareness is a priority for DOT as part of its National Roadway Safety Strategy.
