Florida Students Capture Seat Belt Safety Message in Art

March 12, 2010

Thousands of students in Florida believe that safety belts save lives and dozens of them throughout the state captured their artistic vision of how that happens when they entered GEICO’s annual Safety Belt Poster and Video Contest.

One of those students, Michael Franck of Miami-Dade County, even turned out to be a national grand prize winner in this year’s competition and earned a cash award for himself in the computer-generated category.

“Florida’s Click It or Ticket campaign that’s going on right now emphasizes how important wearing safety belts is,” said George Rogers, GEICO’s regional vice president in Lakeland. “We’re so pleased to see that so many students are well aware of that and are eager to promote that idea through their art.”

Franck used his graphic design skill to create a poster depicting a seat belt angel with outstretched wings. His poster stood out in the computer-generated category with the most clear and focused message of safety.
