Two Auburn High School students in Rockford won a sign contest meant to reduce speeding in neighborhoods.
Out of 35 submissions overall, Angelica Morales and Chase Heim were named as the winners during a city council meeting for their design with the slogan, “Slow down. Kids matter.”
Both students won a city and park district prize package that included movie tickets and passes for various city activities.
Rockford traffic engineer Jeremy Carter says the number one complaint the city traffic division gets is speeding in residential areas.
