Are you an artist between the ages of 6 - 18 or know someone who is? If so, then you don't want to miss out on NFPA's Firewise calendar contest. Enter your "hottest" artwork on the theme of "Wildfire Preparedness:  Living Compatibly with Nature" for publication in our 2015 Firewise calendar, and have an opportunity to win an Amazon gift card!

The contest begins March 19. Deadline for submissions is June 2, 2014. Calendar 4

Here's what you need to do to be a part of the contest:

The photograph of the original drawing or other original artwork should be in .jpeg or .tif format of at least 300 dpi and at least 1 megabyte in size in portrait or landscape format. Put the photograph on a CD labeled with the Participant’s first name and last initial.
