Sparky the Fire Dog is teaming up with The Center for Campus Fire Safety (CCFS) and asking college students to submit 30- or 60-second video public service announcements (PSAs) highlighting the importance of fire safety. 

Video submissions will be accepted throughout Campus Fire Safety Month, September 1-30. The winner of this contest will receive a $500 gift card!

The contest is part of Sparky’s expanded public outreach efforts during the year-long observance of his 60th birthday. In celebration of his six decades as a fire safety icon, Sparky is asking college students to brush up on lessons they may have learned as children and to take a fresh look at fire prevention and safety information that will help them prevent fires and protect themselves as they live independently from their parents in on- or off-campus housing. Read NFPA's fact sheet on campus fire safety.
