We have an important announcement regarding the Safety Poster and Essay Contest. Due to the recent inclement weather that forced schools across our region to close for several days, we have decided to extend the contest deadline by two weeks. The new deadline will be Friday, February 14, 2014.
Our goal in extending the deadline is to give teachers more classroom time. We understand that many of you use this as a graded project and we want students to have adequate time to put their best effort forward.
Under the contest rules, all electronically submitted entries must now be received by February 14. All entries sent via the U.S. Post Office or other parcel carrier must be postmarked or otherwise dated to indicate that they were sent on or by February 14.
A steady stream of entries has already been trickling in and we’re truly excited to see such a high level of talent in both the poster and essay divisions. We hope the extra time will encourage even more students to participate.
As always, you can contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you all again for making Metra’s Safety Poster and Essay Contest such a success.
