Halloween Safety Campaign

Make this Halloween a Treat, Not a Trick.

The Halloween Safety Campaign is an opportunity for middle schools, high schools and youth groups to join YOVASO in promoting a safe and fun Halloween! In 2020, all Virginia high schools, middle schools, and youth groups were encouraged to participate in a virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest! The contest was open to students ages 11-20 and entries were due by October 31 at midnight.

YOVASO selected 10 entries for public voting that took place November 2-4. The five pumpkins that received the most votes each won a $25 Amazon Gift Card! All prizes were made possible by a grant from State Farm.

2021 Campaign Dates:

The 2021 Halloween Campaign has been combined with the Drive for Change: Buckle Up and Slow Down Campaign. For more information and to register for materials, click here.
