Last call for safety message contest entries

After launching our Safety Message Contest last week, we’ve spent most of the past few days sifting through thousands of clever entries.

The response has been so incredible -- we received 4,000 submissions in the first 24 hours -- that we're changing the contest rules. In a good way!

Instead of whittling down to 15 finalists, we'll select 20. And instead of displaying one winning message on Dynamic Message Signs, the top two vote-getters will appear on signs for one day each in April.

Haven’t entered your winning safety message yet? There’s still time! Submissions will be accepted at azdot.gov/signcontest until Sunday, Feb. 19.

When creating your message, follow these guidelines:
  • Signs accommodate three lines and 18 characters, including spaces, per line
  • #Hashtags, phone numbers and website addresses are not allowed
  • Signs can’t accommodate emoji
In March, we'll post the 20 finalists to our website and let the public choose the winners.
