Several Serrano Intermediate School students are among 30 winners chosen in a Metrolink poster contest promoting rail safety. Their assignment: create an illustration that promotes rail safety and warns of the dangers of trespassing on railroad crossings.
The Metrolink Safety Program received more than 300 entries from middle school students in 16 districts and five counties.
Serrano, the only Orange County school to have winning entries, held an assembly earlier this month to celebrate. The event featured Los Angeles Clippers player Darrick Martin.
First-place winners--Camille Bulaclac, Chelsea Hipple, Sade Williams and Korey Ward--each received $250 savings bonds. Second-place winners--David Wang and Nicole Weatherly--received $100 savings bonds. Third-place winner Ryan Kim received a $50 savings bond.
