Natalie Lindquist of Lincoln Elementary School in
Mundelein captured first place among all third-grade
poster entries in Metra’s safety poster contest.
The contest is designed to promote railroad safety
practices to students, ages kindergarten through high
school, throughout the six-county Northeastern Illinois
The theme of this year’s safety poster contest, “Play it
Safe: Look, Listen and Live,” was chosen to recognize the
importance of fundamental safety behaviors that people
should commit to around trains and railroad tracks.
The first-place winning poster designs will be featured
in more than 2,000 schools in the region throughout the
year to encourage safety around trains. The designs will
also be pictured on Metra’s monthly commuter tickets.
