Chalk 1 Up 4 Safety or C1U4S, is a program created by Safe America to help encourage and empower teens to communicate with their peers, through the power of art, about safety issues for which they care deeply.
The week of April 20, middle school and high school aged teens are encouraged to get together with their friends or classmates to create a chalk-based sidewalk art message at their school, church, or with a different group they may belong to, stressing the idea that – when it comes to texting and driving - "It Can Wait®.”
The top 10 designs in the middle and high school age brackets will be invited to compete for $500 at the Chalk-Off, taking place in Atlanta at the Woodruff Arts Center Piazza on May 16, from 9:00 am to noon.
On Thursday, March 5, the Safe America Foundation held its first quarterly Safe Communities meeting of 2015 at WSB-TV's offices in Midtown Atlanta. Attendance at the meeting was strong, with dozens of participants from private companies, local school districts, Georgia state government and Veteran Service Organizations.
The meeting covered a variety of topics, including a recap of our most recent Welcome Home Heroes event that was held in January at a Gwinnett Gladiators professional ice hockey game. Also on hand was Clayton County Public Schools' Eboni Chillis, who remarked on the tangible success of this past-November's Brain Camp.
