The WalkSafe™ program is an elementary school-based program that teaches children the benefits of walking to and from school safely. Tangi won the contest by creating a poster using the theme Walk with your Eyes that depicted two “eyes” walking across a street. She will receive a pair of sneakers and a laptop computer, and her poster will be adopted as the official WalkSafe™ logo for next year.
