Every year, AAA Northeast invites Essex, Morris and Union County students in grades K – 12 to participate in the AAA Traffic Safety Poster & Video Contest. The Contest encourages creativity and represents a unique opportunity for students to communicate safety messages to their peers.

Participation in the contest gives students the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and traffic safety knowledge on the subjects of pedestrian, bike, child passenger and novice driver safety. Students in Grades K – 8 may submit an original, hand-drawn poster featuring an original slogan, while students in Grades 9 – 12 have the option to submit a hand-drawn poster, a graphic arts/digitally enhanced design, or a one- to two-minute video public service announcement (PSA).

The competition is judged on a state-wide basis by traffic safety and art experts. Entries are judged on the relationship of the entry to proper traffic safety practices, originality, creativity and execution, visual impact and relevance of the slogan.

Winning entries are featured on the AAA Northeast website and may appear in the Club’s monthly publication, Your AAA.
