Created: 4/15/11 (Fri) | Topic: Education
A third-grader from Bismarck is the winner of North Dakota Farm Bureau’s 2011 safety picture contest.
Scout Wheeler, from Grimsrud Elementary took home the top prize from entries across the state for her picture featuring a tractor, a horse and one of the ABC (Always Be Careful) safety slogans, “One seat. One rider.”
“Scout did an awesome job,” said NDFB safety coordinator Staci Lee. “We had many outstanding pictures this year, but this one stood out not only for the great artwork, but also for the important safety message.”
As the winner, Scout will receive a $100 savings bond. In addition, her artwork will be featured on placemats used at Farm Bureau functions throughout the year. Her picture is also available for download on the North Dakota Farm Bureau website at www.ndfb.org/edusafe/safetyart.
“Each year, we hear about children being injured or killed because they are riding as a passenger on a tractor, a four-wheeler or some other machine that only has one seat,” Lee said. “Hopefully, by increasing safety awareness, particularly among children, we can make a positive difference and see fewer of those sad headlines about an injury or death on the farm.”
