Winner Named for Santa Clara County's 1st Annual Bike Rack Decorating Contest
First and foremost thank you all for participating in the first annual National Bike to School Day
! From what I’ve heard and witnessed we had a great turnout of students, parents, and even teachers riding their bikes to/from school. Many thanks to all of those who participated in the school-wide bike rack decorating contest. It was great seeing the students' creativity in how they transformed their schools' ordinary bike racks into something extraordinary!
Now the moment you have all been waiting for, it’s time to announce the winning school of the first annual bike rack decorating contest. And the winner is …………Cherry Chase Elementary!
CONGRATULATIONS Cherry Chase Elementary, you have been voted the winning school of the bike rack decorating contest! You will be receiving the Golden Bike Award and of course, “bragging rights,” until next year’s competition. Below, you’ll find photos of Cherry Chase Elementary’s prize winning decorated bike racks, as well as photos from all the participating schools.
Special thanks to our judges: Councilmember Jim Davis of Sunnyvale and Officers Steven Walpole, Kerry Harris and Leyton Howard of the Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Department.
