Nearly five children are hit by people driving every day in Illinois while walking or biking within one block of a school.

Chicagoland Bike and Walk Photo Contest

Need a good excuse to take a ride or walk this weekend? Want to win $250?

If you answered yes to either of those questions, Active Trans has an opportunity for you!

We're holding a photo contest and we want photos of your community. Grab your camera, your bike or walking shoes, and a few friends. Take as many pictures as you want that show the best and worst places to bike and walk in Chicagoland. Take pictures of your usual routes or focus on new places.

Then share your photos in our Flickr group and tag the suject of the photo and where you took it. We'll be using the photos in our publications, so watch to see your art appear around Chicagoland!

Contest ends April 30, 2011. Be sure to read the rules.
