“Over the years, children have been a key audience for NFPA and fire-safety educators,” she says. “They are great receivers of the fire-safety message, and they’re also great deliverers of that message.”
Now, kids can play an even bigger role in fire safety by participating in The Paradigm Challenge, a new competition developed by Project Paradigm, the American Red Cross, the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, and a coalition of fire safety organizations, including NFPA. The project, which will award up to $100,000 per team for the top 100 teams, is designed to get kids ages 7 to 18 involved in reducing deaths and injuries due to home fires by contributing their own fire safety ideas.
