Trending...
~ The City of Mesa's Bicycle and Pedestrian Program has announced the winners of this year's Move Safe Public Service Announcement Contest. The contest, which was open to Mesa students ages 12-18, invited participants to create a 30-second video showcasing how to safely walk, bike, or roll in the community using one of five safety tips.

After reviewing more than 11 entries from students representing four different schools, a panel of judges from ASU, Cox Communications, Phoenix Film Festival, and the City of Mesa selected the winners. The Grand Prize went to local student Alex Barker for his PSA video titled "Cool Biking Tips." The runner-up videos were "Crosswalking 101" by Sean Mitchell and "Daily's Bicycling Tips" by William Reynolds, William Good, Benjamin Reynolds, and Adam Florez.

Mesa Transportation Director RJ Zeder expressed his satisfaction with the response from youth in the community towards the Move Safe Public Service Announcement Contest. He stated that their engagement highlights the importance of promoting a culture of road safety awareness for all ages.
