Readfield Students Encourage Drivers to Slow Down: “Drive 25 – Keep Kids Alive”
Involving students in efforts to make our communities safer is fun and rewarding. Last spring, Readfield Elementary School third graders led a campaign to encourage drivers to slow down and observe the 25 mile per hour speed limit along Main Street.
Students created announcements using the slogan, “Drive 25 – Keep Kids Alive” to run in local newspapers and the town’s newsletter. They also wrote an open letter to the residents of Readfield explaining the issue and asking them to stick to the speed limit when driving through town.
The students participated in a poster contest using the campaign slogan as well. The 3 winning posters are on display downtown near the post office. And an informational tri-fold brochure containing a picture of the winning poster was created, too.
Our hats are off to the third grade students and their teachers for their efforts to increase safety on the streets of Readfield!
