Metra's 2019-2020 Safety Contest! Show us why you should "Obey the Signs" when around trains and railroad tracks.

For the 14th straight year, Metra asked the region's students to illustrate through posters or essays the importance of safe behaviors near railroad tracks and rail crossings. The theme for the 2019-2020 school year: “Obey the Signs" emphasizes the importance of looking for and obeying signs and control devices that are installed along the railroad tracks and at rail crossings.

The contest is open to all students in grades K through 12 living or attending school in Metra’s six-county service area: Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will. The deadline for all entries is Friday, Jan. 31, 2020.
