The Chicken

When we launched our program in 2009, we started with a joke/art contest within the schools called “Why did the chicken cross the road?”  Students submitted entries to be judged at a community kickoff.  The chicken mascot was officially hatched.

The next year, the theme for the yearbook at our intermediate school was “Safe Routes, Safe Schools” and students submitted artwork which nearly always included the chicken and the tiger (our school mascot) and even crossing guards and safe houses.

The ideas and concepts of safety and health and walking were taking hold in a creative and fun way.
