A number of events and outreach programs for young people are planned during National Transportation Week (NTW), which is to be held May 14-20, 2000. One NTW activity is a poster contest being sponsored for fifth graders. Students are invited to enter artwork that represents their thoughts on the theme, "Transportation...Taking You Where You Want to Go." Another event planned during the week is the Design for Transportation National Awards at the National Academy of Sciences. Other activities include a discussion on "Transportation in the 21st Century," featuring a panel of former secretaries of transportation, and a reception at which the historical, transportation-related paintings by artist and former Bureau of Public Roads employee Carl Rakeman will be displayed.
