About the contest:

In 2005, Street Smarts launched an annual Poster Contest that challenged San Ramon Valley elementary school students to create posters depicting traffic safety messages. Starting in 2008, the Poster Contest became the Storybook Poster Contest, in which the students’ posters were now eligible to be featured in a valleywide storybook about traffic safety.

The Street Smarts traffic safety storybook showcases the artistic talent that exists in the San Ramon Valley while fostering the learning of traffic safety principles. Each storybook is written by local author Dana Mentink. The Street Smarts Storybook Poster Contest “lives on” throughout the year, as the storybook is distributed in the community at special events and venues in the San Ramon Valley.
