Tarrant County Public Health’s annual Public Health Week Poster Contest challenged students in grades 1 - 8 to produce original artwork related to the theme "Safety is No Accident: Live Injury-Free." Crosswalk safety, safe biking and texting while driving were some of the creative visuals young students used to illustrate the theme and to get their message across.
