Garden City High School freshman, Emma Lightner, won the Division 3 of the Kansas School Bus Safety Poster Contest. As the state winner for Division 3, her poster will now move on to the national competition and be evaluated during the annual National Association for Pupil Transportation conference by prominent individuals in the field of student transportation.
The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) and the Kansas State Pupil Transportation Association (KSPTA) sponsor the state-level contest. The agency received around 200 entries from districts across Kansas.
KSDE narrows the list down to five in each division. The winners from each division then advance to the national competition.
