Thank you for your interest in AAA Northeast’s Traffic Safety Poster & Video Contest! This annual contest is open to all students in grades K-12 throughout AAA Northeast’s territory in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island.

The contest provides students in grades K-12 the opportunity to teach their peers safe behaviors in and around traffic while demonstrating their artistic talent! We invite students to create a poster (either hand drawn or graphic design). High school students have the option of creating a poster or a short "PSA" video (no more than two minutes in length) illustrating a powerful and memorable traffic safety message.
