To order posters, contact the American School Bus Council at info@americanschoolbuscouncil.org


National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program and an excellent way for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties - to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety. Designed to promote school bus safety, school districts throughout the country observe School Bus Safety Week - held during the third week in October each year. 

The centerpiece of National School Bus Safety Week is the National School Bus Safety Week (SBSW) Poster Contest. Thousands of school districts in over 40 states participate in local and state-level competitions to select art work that depicts school bus safety-related themes and encourages and promotes school bus safety. The winning posters are used to promote safer school transportation for everyone.

Contestants must illustrate the theme “Be Safe-Know the Danger Zone”. (Please Note: The “Can’t Touch This – The Danger Zone!” theme was changed in January of 2020 in response to concerns it could be misconstrued. If students have already drawn posters based on this theme, they will still be accepted as valid entries in the national contest.) The theme on the poster must be exactly as shown above, to include all punctuation. All posters need to be post marked to KDE by May 1.
