RAILWAY PLAZA ASSOCIATION
"An Educational Journey into the History of Railroads in Southern California"
Fullerton School District trustees at their May 2014 board meeting honored the students who created this year's top six Railroad Safety Poster Contest entries.
For the 16th year, the Southern California Railway Plaza Association presented the competition focused on awareness of the need for safe behaviors around trains and the tracks that cut across Fullerton. The contest was open to more that 12,000 local students in kindergarten through the sixth grade.
Each elementary school was invited to submit its top six entries by grade division, and six citywide winners were chosen from those submissions. All of the schools' winning posters were displayed at the Fullerton Public Library Children's Room in May.
The top six citywide winners’ posters were displayed at Railroad Days 2014. Those students each received Amtrak® passes for four round-trip tickets to San Diego or Santa Barbara and cash prizes of $100, $75 or $50, respectively, based on placement.
A special thank you to our 2014 sponsors, Amtrak ® and Fullerton Rotary Club.
Here are the top six citywide winning students, by grade divisions, with their school and poster theme:
First place - Chris Song - Fern Drive School - "Danger! Do Not Cross"
Second place - William Gim - Fisler School - "Wait a Little Before Crossing"
Third place - Ryan Novajoski- Golden Hill School - "Stop, Look, Listen"
