For additional materials to help your school promote and plan the event, we’ve put together a Planning Tool Kit (zip file). This kit includes additional information about ACES and its history, invitation ideas, planning and program suggestions, talking points and sample speeches, and templates for your press releases, school newsletter, and more.

Poster Contest

Michigan students in grades K-8 are invited to take part in the 2019 ACES & B2SD Poster Contest brought to you by Farm Bureau Insurance. On 8.5 x 11-inch paper, students are encouraged to get excited about being active and interpret this year’s theme: Make It Magic!

The first-place winner will receive a bicycle courtesy of Farm Bureau Insurance! Only entries sent on or before Friday, April 19, 2019 will be accepted. Judging will take place the week of April 22, and winners will be announced on Friday, April 26. Judging will be based on creativity, inclusion of the theme, and originality. Age and grade will play a factor in the judging.
