Chase County student wins annual design contest

Sophia Glanville of Chase County High School was the winner of the Kansas Turnpike Authority’s sixth annual design contest. This contest celebrates National Work Zone Awareness Week and encourages teen drivers to be aware of safe driving behaviors through work zones.

National Work Zone Awareness Week is a safety campaign held each spring highlighting the need for safe, attentive driving through work zones to prevent injuries and fatalities for workers and motorists.

“Sophia did a great job of presenting the importance of staying focused while in a work zone for her design,” said Rachel Bell, KTA’s Director of Business Services & Customer Relations. “Distractions affect drivers of all ages, so finding ways to creatively instill safe driving habits is important to us.”
