Last call for safety message contest entries

By Doug Pacey / ADOT Communications

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.
