The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is extending the submission deadline for the 2015 “Be Ready. Be Buckled” student art contest until March 16, 2015. The contest is being held to educate kids about highway safety and urges commercial drivers to buckle up on every trip.

The contest was organized by the Commercial Motor Vehicle safety Belt Partnership and is open to students in kindergarten through sixth grade with relatives or sponsors in the commercial truck and bus industries.

Artwork is evaluated in two categories by age groups: kindergarten through second grade and third through sixth grade. Twelve winners will be selected and their artwork will appear in the 2016 “Be Ready. Be Buckled” contest calendar.

In addition to having their artwork included in the calendar, all 12 students will also be honored at a ceremony at U.S. Department of Transportation headquarters in the spring.
