Student art featured on traffic safety yard signs
Congratulations to students Josie Bremner and Joslyn Kruse, whose winning artwork has been printed on traffic safety yard signs that will be distributed in May to interested community members to make Olympia a safer place to walk and roll.

Bremner, a student at Olympia Regional Learning Academy, and Kruse, of Olympia High School, are two of three Thurston County student winners in an InterCity Transit Yard Sign Art Challenge held last fall.

The goal of the project is to encourage drivers to slow down to improve safety, especially in neighborhoods where students walk or ride bikes to school. The sign project is a partnership between Intercity Transit’s Walk N Roll program, Target Zero Thurston Task Force, Safe Kids Thurston County and the Olympia Police Department, and funded by a State Farm grant.

Pick up a free yard sign at drive-thru events in the parking lot at the following four distribution events in Olympia:

May 11, Jefferson Middle School; 4-6 p.m.
May 13, Garfield Elementary School; 4-6 p.m.
May 18, Reeves Middle School; 4-6 p.m.
May 19, Roosevelt Elementary School; 4-6 p.m.
