Learn Not to Burn Poster Contest
Cassie Colgrove, Age 9
Lincoln Fire & Rescue is sponsoring its annual fire safety poster contest as part of Fire Prevention Week October 8-12. The goals for the children are to have fun while using their imagination and creativity to develop a fire safety scene or idea and message. This message should reinforce fire safety lessons they have learned while allowing them to express themselves artistically and creatively. Attached you will find examples of fire safety messages students may use for this contest.
One poster will be selected from your class by firefighters who serve as resource officers to your school. Each school winner will receive a blue ribbon. From the school winners, the fire chief will choose a grand city winner. The grand winner will receive a red ribbon and a ride to school in a fire engine. The poster will be displayed on Lincoln Fire & Rescue website at www.lincoln.ne.gov/city/fire, and an enlarged poster will be on display at the City County building.
Your school resource crew will award the school winner and he/she will receive a ribbon. Lincoln Fire & Rescue appreciates your efforts in teaching children Fire Safety Education. If you have questions, please contact Firefighter Andrew Silcox at Station #3, (402) 441-8373.
