Third-Grade Students Invited to Participate in Fire Department Safety Poster Contest
The Forsyth County Fire Department invites all local third-grade students to share their artistic talents while promoting a commitment to safety in their annual Safety Poster Contest.
Students are asked to make an original poster about one of three themes:
- Get Low and Go (Crawl under smoke to leave a burning building)
- Electrical Hazards (Power outlets, keeping electrical items away from water)
- Outdoor Fire Safety (Fire pits, outdoor cooking, wildlands)
Submissions will be accepted through March 3, and the winners of each theme will be announced March 10. Winners will be offered a dessert party with their class and local firefighters; a Certificate of Accomplishment from the Forsyth County Fire Chief and winners will also have their artwork displayed in various Forsyth County government buildings.
Participants must fill out a release form, which can be found by clicking here, and attach it to the back of their poster for proper submission. For full information regarding contest rules, themes and release forms, please visit the Fire Department webpage.
