On Thursday, Jan. 12 Golbow Elementary will host a safety assembly and receive an award of $5,000 from Safe Kids.

In October 2011, Safe Kids hosted a photo contest on Facebook for schools that participated in Walk to School Day, an annual day dedicated to raising awareness about pedestrian safety.  Schools that held Walk to School Day events were eligible to win a $5,000 prize and a visit from Sesame Street’s walkaround Grover as part of the Safe Kids Walk This Way program.  Safe Kids selected 10 finalists from the more than 70 photo entries submitted on Facebook and fans voted to determine the winning photo. 

Safe Kids and program sponsor FedEx created the Safe Kids Walk This Way program to teach safe behaviors to motorists and child pedestrians – to create safer, more walkable communities.
