A student from Martha Baldwin Elementary School will have his artwork featured in a road safety calendar published by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Daniel Chia, a first grader, was a finalist in the Department of Transportation’s 2017 Road Safety Student Art Contest. His drawing depicts smiling drivers, pedestrians and cyclists safely using the roads and crossing the street to get to their intended destinations.

Chia told the Alhambra Source that he’s doing what he loves. “I like to draw,” he said. “My mom asked me which contest to choose. I like cars. I choose this one.”

Chia has also participated in other art contests this year with the Alhambra Civic Center Library, the National Parks Service and NASA. Check out Daniel’s entry above, and read more about the contest here.
