Thank you to all who participated in our Walking School Bus (WSB) Photo Challenge
Safe Routes received 8 photos of Walking School Buses (WSB) for the WSB Photo Challenge. For more details on the WSB Challenge, see https://sr2smoscow.com/2012/09/26/walking-school-bus-photo-challenge/
For this Challenge, Safe Routes promised to randomly select a winning group from the photos received and award the winning group the Green Shoe Award for their school and individual prizes to the walkers in the winning WSB. To find our winning group, we asked Professor Mike Lowry to randomly select a number and applied that to the pictures.
A Walking School Bus is a group of kids that walk with 1-2 adults along a specific route to school.
Here is the picture of the Green Shoe in all it’s glory!
