National School Bus Safety Week Commences

The National School Bus Safety Week, administered by the National Association of Pupil Transportation, is here. Starting Monday, school transportation departments around the country celebrate drivers and school buses alike.

This year’s theme is “Safely Rolling to my Destination” with the goal of promoting safety on school buses and addressing the importance of bus drivers. National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program, held during the third full week of October each year, designed to promote school bus safety and a way for parents, students, school administrators, etc. to highlight the importance of safety on board the bus.

The centerpiece of National School Bus Safety Week is the poster contest, where thousands of school districts from all over the country participate in local and state-level competitions to select artwork depicting themes related to school bus safety. The winner this year is Avrie Siedschlag, a student from Coon Rapids Middle School in Coon Rapids, Michigan.

Avrie Siedschlag, a student at Coon Rapids Middle School in Minnesota is the winner of the 2022-2023 NAPT National School Bus Safety Poster Contest. The theme was, Safely Rolling to my Destination. Photo courtesy of the NAPT.
