School Bus Safety Poster Contest Winner

How can you get kids to think about staying safe on the way to and from school? Here's a way: Laidlaw's annual school bus safety poster contest. The theme was "I see the driver, and the driver sees me," to make kids aware of traffic around them.

Southwest Middle School fifth grader Olivia Harrell's the big winner.

"We have the bus driver in the bus, waving to the person walking across the street, and the person is waving to the bus driver to make sure she sees her," Olivia said of her poster.

Olivia takes home a brand new computer for her efforts. And winners from each of the four grades involved won $50 prizes.
