School Bus Poster Winners

Pipestone Flyer

At the Black Gold Regional School (BGRS) board meeting three students were recognized for winning the 2013 School Bus Safety Week Poster contest. Leduc Estates Kindergarten student, Rylee-Jayne Kusiak, Lindsford Park grade 3 student, Akilah Alor and Kindergarten student Emmica McCaffery also from Leduc Estates School proudly pose with their winning pictures. BGRS Transportation Manager, Sue Timmermans said over 1500 posters are submitted provincially each year. “For Black Gold Schools to have 3 winners in one year is wonderful.”

    Each winner received a framed picture of their poster to hang up in their school, a plaque with their name on it and a $50 gift card for Chapters Indigo for them to use at their leisure.  All three winning students also received $100 to go towards a fieldtrip for their classroom. 

    The School Bus Safety Week Poster contest is an annual Provincial contest.
