     Zak Flinders, fifth-grade student from Canyon Elementary, entered UDOT's contest "Walk More in 4".  UDOTwanted to encourage students to walk or bike to school therefore putting less cars on the roads.  During the month of September, students kept track of all the days they walked or rode their bikes to and from school.  If you conformed 75% of the time, you were eligible for a drawing for a bike or scooter.  UDOT received over 4,000 entries.  They gave out 30 bikes and scooters.  Zak was surprised to find out that he was a winner of a new bicycle and helmet.  Cherissa Wood from UDOT presented the bike to Zak in his classroom.
