Each year the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department hosts the Annual Fire Safety Poster Contest.
Get out your markers, crayons, water colors, finger paints, pens and pencils! Get a fresh piece of paper, and show the Town of Castle Rock what you know about fire safety. Do you want to be a partner in fire safety? Then join us in our 17th annual poster contest!
This year we are asking entrants to use the theme: "Don't wait, check the date. Replace smoke alarms every 10 years."
Smoke alarms are a life saving technology. Three of five fatalities in home fires are due to malfunctioning or missing smoke alarms. For more information, check out the NFPA smoke alarm safety sheet.
As with all contests, there are rules that need to be followed:
You must be a student in a Castle Rock school and attending third through the sixth grade
Posters must be made on a white 8 1/2" by 11" paper
Please DO NOT submit on lined paper unless it is part of your picture
Please use all of your creativity and plenty of color
Please complete the entry form and feel free to use the back of the entry form to draw your picture
Only one entry per student
When you enter, we all win!
You have a very important message to get out to all of the residents of Castle Rock. If your entry is selected, it will be made into a decal that is placed on the side of a fire truck where it will ride throughout the entire year. These messages are seen by almost every resident and visitor of Castle Rock.
Fire Chief Art Morales will select the four posters placed on the fire trucks for the year.
Entries are due to your teacher no later than Aug. 29, 2016. No entries will be accepted after that date.
