UPDATE: The deadline to submit an entry for the Fire Department’s Fire Safety Poster Contest has been pushed to April 13.

The Forsyth County Fire Department invites all local third-grade students to share their artistic talents while promoting a commitment to fire safety in their annual Fire Safety Poster Contest.

Students are asked to make an original poster about one of three themes:

-Working smoke alarms save lives

-Stop, drop and roll

-Close before you doze

Submissions will be accepted through April 13, and the winners of each theme will be announced April 3. Winners will receive a pizza party with their class and local firefighters, a Certificate of Accomplishment from the Forsyth County fire chief and winners will also have the honor of having their artwork displayed in Forsyth County buildings.


Participants can view full rules, fill out the needed release form and attach it to the back of their poster for proper submission.
