Make it Click – Sidewalk Chalk Art & Competition

Date(s): Friday, August 11, 2017

Time: 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM

Other Dates


SD EMSC, AAA, Volunteers of America, Dakotas and the SD Office of Highway Safety present "Make It Click"! Check out the artists while they create their pieces of art in the downtown area between August 11 and August 18 in preparation for the public vote for favorite on August 19 (4:30-6:30).

The goal of the "Make it Click – Sidewalk Chalk Campaign" is to visually communicate the importance of wearing a seat belt. 

Odds of winning the Powerball jackpot 1 in 292,201,338 - Odds of dying from an asteroid impact 1 in 74,814, 414 – Odds of dying while skydiving 1 in 133,000 – Odds of dying while scuba diving 1 in 6,098 – all have low probability when compared to traffic crashes: Odds of dying from a car crash w/no seat belt 1 in 2.

Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash and a proper fit/belt path matters: (1) shoulder belt across the chest and over the shoulder, (2) lap belt low on the hips.

Check out the works of art as they are being created at the following locations beginning August 11th:
    1. Coffea                                4. Josephines            7. WoodGrain
    2. 605 Running Company      5. Shriver Square      8. Prairie Berry
    3. Sioux Falls Arts Council     6. Zandbroz               9. Hilton Garden Inn

On Saturday, August 19 from 4:30-6:30 SD EMSC, AAA, Volunteers of America, Dakotas and the SD Office of Highway Safety invite the public to vote for their favorite work of art promoting seat belt use during the "Make it Click - Sidewalk Chalk Campaign" on sidewalks in front of the locations listed above.

This activity is in tandem with the Downtown Sioux Falls Riverfest Celebration and volunteers will be at each location to collect votes.
