Walk + Roll Art Contest
International Walk+Roll to School Day is over, but our Safe Routes to School art contest is still going strong! Oregon students from grades K – 8 are encouraged to create an art piece showcasing why they walk+roll. Is it for health, community, fun, climate, or something else?
Submit your entry by Halloween (October 31) to win one of these jam-packed backpacks!
Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day
The Street Trust is proud to help bring Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day to students across our state and region on November 17th.
A group of fifth-graders from Martin Elementary School in South San Francisco, California started this event in 2018 after they learned about Ruby Bridges, who made history as the first African-American child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana on November 14, 1960, during the New Orleans school desegregation crisis. Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day encourages students to learn about past social justice history and apply it to antiracism work today.
Schools will be able to order incentives for their students, use our bingo card to help students engage with the material, and find more activities from the San Mateo County team that’s been hosting the event since 2018.
