CVTA has received this announcement from Nichole Causey of FMCSA on Feb. 28, 2013.
I am writing to you to announce that the 2013 “Be Ready. Be Buckled.” Art Contest will be extended to March 15, 2013. To date we have received 4 entries. We really need at least two dozen to have enough for a competitive contest and to create the Annual Calendar that is such an effective tool for spreading the “Be Ready. Be Buckled.” Message.
Many of you have been busy promoting the contest on your Web sites and through social media. I thank you for your efforts. Now we need to take the next step and bring the contest home. I am including the Partner Resources again, maybe there’s a tool in there you haven’t used yet, or something new you can try.
With over thirty partners there are at least 500,000 people in the CMV Partnership network. We need to leverage this and reach out to parents, grandparents, teachers and others who have little budding artists in their lives.
On a personal note, I encourage you to consider sponsoring a child yourself. We too are eligible to sponsor the children in our lives. Let’s not miss an opportunity so close to home.
Your support is critical to the success of this contest. Please think of how you can contribute in the next two weeks.
