Heritage Elementary Student Winner of the 2019 Bike to School Challenge T-Shirt Contest

Medina City Schools is once again partnering with Century Cycles in Medina to bring the Bike to School Challenge to all of the seven elementary buildings and the two middle schools May 6-17.  As part of the event this year, elementary students submitted artwork as part of a t-shirt contest. The selected artwork will appear on the fronts of the shirts worn during the event by riders who complete four days during their challenge week.  


The winning artwork was created by Heritage Elementary fifth-grader Izzy Andrich.  On Friday, April 12 during their morning opener, she was presented with a certificate with her artwork and a gift card donated by Century Cycles.  Blake Elementary, Fenn Elementary, Northrop Elementary, Waite Elementary, and A.I. Root Middle School will ride the week of May 6-10 and Canavan Elementary, Garfield Elementary, Heritage Elementary, and Claggett Middle School will ride the week of May 13-17.


To kick-off the challenge, there will be a Bike Safety Fair on Wednesday, April 24 from 6:30 PM -8:00 PM at Century Cycles in Medina, 1059 North Court Street. Stop in for a FREE safety check on bikes and helmets, register your bike with the Medina Police Department and pick up information about the Bike to School Challenge.
