Fullerton School District trustees at their May 12 board meeting honored the students who created this year's top six Railroad Safety Poster Contest entries..

For the 17th 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 11,000 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 are on display at the Fullerton Public Library Children's Room through May 22.

The top six citywide winners’ posters were displayed at Railroad Days 2015. 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 2015 sponsors, Amtrak ® and Fullerton Rotary Club.
