The annual competition is organized by the National School Transit Association and began more than 40 years ago when it was called the National School Bus Safety "Road-e-o." It happens in a different city each summer.
This year's event will be held Saturday and Sunday in a parking lot near BWI Marshall Airport and more than 100 drivers will compete. Each of them placed in the top 10 in safety competitions in their own states or provinces.
The drivers start with a written test and then get behind the wheel. They're expected to exhibit their demonstrate their professionalism, skill, and dedication to taking students safely to and from school.
