If you’re a Kansas kid age 5 to 13, you could win some great prizes in the Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day poster contest. In the contest, kids are asked to enter artwork representing their thoughts on “Put the Brakes on Fatalities.”

Three statewide winners will receive family packages at the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City and $50 gift cards from Dillon’s.

Also, 18 regional winners in the six regions and age groups (ages 5-7, 8-10 and 11-13) will each receive a bicycle and a helmet donated by Safe Kids Kansas.

The deadline to enter the contest is less than a month away. Entries must be postmarked by Friday, Sept. 19, and should be mailed to: AAA Kansas, Public Affairs, 3545 SW Sixth St., Topeka, KS 66606. On the back of an 8 ½ by 11-inch paper entry must be the child’s full name, age at time of entry, mailing address, county, a parent’s name, and contact phone number.
