The Safe America Foundation host numerous events through the year to promote safety. One of these events is called 'Chalk 1 up 4 Safety.'  

The ‘Chalk 1 Up 4 Safety’ contest is a safety focused art contest for middle and high school students in the greater Atlanta area, developed by the Safe America Foundation and funded by Allstate Insurance.

‘Chalk 1 Up for Safety’ has student teams compete with each other by creating a safety message through an original chalk art drawing. Students base their design and message on one of the following safety themes: ‘It Can Wait’ (Anti-texting and Driving), ‘Be More than a Bystander' (Bullying), ‘Look, Listen, Live’ (Railroad Safety) and ‘Be #Cyber Safe’ (Online Safety).

Safe America will provide the contest materials, which includes foam board and street chalk. A panel of judges will pick the winning design, based on creativity and a clear, compelling safety message.

Plus, the winning middle and high school teams will each receive a prize of $500, courtesy of Montlick & Associates.
