Children, grandchildren of BNSF employees and retirees eligible for Safety Drawing Contest

BNSF’s Safety Department is once again sponsoring the annual safety drawing contest. Entries will be judged and prizes awarded for the grand prize winner and for each age category. The age categories, determined by the child's age on May 12, 2017, are as follows:

  • 3 and younger (no single winner; all entries receive a participation prize)
  • 4-5
  • 6-8
  • 9-11
  • 12-14
  • 15-17

The theme this year is “What can we do to keep each other safe?”

At BNSF, nothing is more important than our employees and workers returning home safely at the end of the workday – as well as maintaining their safety focus at home and when engaged in hobbies. One way employees are helping to achieve this is through their commitment to Approaching Others About Safety.

Prizes: $100 gift card for grand prize winner; $50 gift card for category winners
