Two students at Wilson Creek Elementary School in Duluth, GA, sisters Christine Jeong and Kelly Jeong, were named winners of a statewide fire safety art contest. In honor of Fire Prevention Week, the Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner and the Georgia Fire Sprinkler Association held a fire safety tips calendar and poster contest. According to a report on JohnsCreekPatch.com, fourth-grader Christine won the cover of the Fire Safety Calendar 2012, which will be sent to more than 10,000 schools across the state. Her sister Kelly won first place for her age group for the poster contest and was awarded a $100 savings bond. The sisters were honored at the 19th annual Fire Safety Banquet in Forsyth on October 11.
