Optional Contests for Miner Families
Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest
During Fire Prevention Week, the Georgia Office of Commissioner of Insurance and Safety Fire works to find every possible way to make learning about fire safety fun and exciting. This year, we will be teaming up with the Georgia Fire Sprinkler Association for the 2022 Fire Safety Tips Calendar Poster Contest. To utilize the creativity of children across the State of Georgia we are hosting a contest with the Georgia Fire Sprinkler Association that provides a fun way for them to bring out their inner artist all while learning about fire safety.
The poster entries should focus on 12 different fire and life safety tips.
Every year, the NFPA puts out a theme for Fire Prevention Week and this year's theme is "Fire Won't Wait. Plan Your Escape", highlights why having a home escape plan is so important in the case of an emergency. The other 11 themes will cover related safety tips.
The winners of this contest will have their drawings placed in a Fire Safety Calendar, which will be handed out to all 3rd grade teachers across the State of Georgia, so that every time they turn the calendar, they can review the safety tip with the students. The main topic will be used for the cover of the calendar and in the month of October.
ALL POSTERS MUST BE MAILED NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 23, 2022.
