Local children win poster contest

Special to the HDN

Seven-year-old Dashiell Brown of Quinter, 9-year-old Jessica Schroeder of Victoria, and 12-year-old Kallie Leiker of Hays recently were named the northwest Kansas winners in the 2013 Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day poster contest.

Each child will receive a bicycle and a helmet donated by Safe Kids Kansas during presentations at their individual schools.

Kallie Leiker, who attends Hays Middle School, is also a statewide poster contest winner in the 11- through 13-year-old age category. She will receive a family gift package from the Great Wolf Lodge water park in Kansas City and a $50 gas card from QuikTrip Corp.

A total of 867 Kansas children ages 5 to 13 participated in the contest. Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day is a national effort to increase roadway safety and reduce traffic fatalities.
