Bike to Books Contest in Mesa

~ Mesa, AZ - The City of Mesa's Bicycle and Pedestrian Program, in partnership with the Mesa Public Library, has announced the return of the Bike to Books contest for its second year. This contest invites students and homeschoolers from prekindergarten to 12th grade to showcase their creativity by designing bike symbol art for a shared use path in the City of Mesa.

The goal of this contest is to encourage Mesa residents to not only bike more, but also read more books. By combining these two activities, participants can explore their community while also expanding their knowledge through literature. The winning designs will be installed on a shared use path in Mesa next winter.

Prizes will be awarded to the creators of the winning designs in three different grade brackets: prekindergarten to 2nd grade, 3rd through 6th grade, and 7th through 12th grade. "It was exciting to see last year's winners light up when they saw their final designs installed," said Mesa Library Director Polly Bonnett. "The contest celebrates the adventures of both biking and reading, and we can't wait to see the creative designs our young participants come up with next."
