Local and statewide public and fire and life safety organizations in Nevada have kicked off a 2017 poster contest to raise awareness among children and their families about fire prevention. Nevada students in 5th and 6th grades, and middle and high school are being asked to participate in the poster contest to celebrate Fire Prevention Week October 8-14 and this year’s theme. “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!™ Student posters will be judged on the local and state level for creativity, originality, and their promotion of fire preparedness and safety. Judging will be completed in September.
A poster contest is one of many ways to raise awareness about fire prevention among young audiences. The Fire Prevention Week Kid’s Activity Posters are filled with hidden pictures, puzzles, and word games. Sparky’s Coloring and Activity Books Value Pack is an economical way to share Sparky the Fire Dog’s® life-saving message. In the Fox Family’s Fire Escape Plan Coloring Book children can have fun coloring whimsical images as they learn about choosing an outside meeting place, practicing the home escape plan and the importance of smoke alarms.
