Kids Wanted to Help Promote Fire Safety

The Roseville Fire Department is sponsoring a poster contest for third-graders

The Roseville Fire Department is looking for creative and enthusiastic kids who want to showcase their artistic talents and to help the community by entering a fire safety poster contest. Entries are due Thursday, Nov. 15

The theme of the contest is "Have 2 Ways Out" — this year's national Fire Prevention Week theme. Entrants are asked to depict important fire safety phrases like "Stop. Drop. And roll," for example.

To be eligible, kids must be enrolled in the third grade at a Roseville public school. 

“By engaging kids in the process, we get their buy in,” said Firefighter Kevin Bohatch. “The artwork will be a permanent reminder for the kids and the community.”

All winners will receive a “Certificate of Accomplishment” from Roseville Fire Chief Marcus Reed. Award winners' artwork will be displayed in Roseville fire stations and other community locations. The winning posters will also be used on the department's website.
