Alert and Ready Wins the Race

  • Final design

Project Description

Beginning in November, students from PS 232 came together to create a new street sign to benefit the community around them and promote social change. Originally inspired by the phrase, “Slow and steady wins the race,” the students set out not only to change the habits of drivers, but to teach their fellow students about waiting their turns at crosswalks and not rushing in to traffic. Using symbolism such as creating an ideal traffic environment on the sign itself, as well as race flags at the end of the crosswalk, the youth home to communicate a message of patience and respect within the community around them.
