The Forsyth County Fire Department is once again inviting local third grade students to display their artistic talents while promoting a commitment to fire safety by participating in the fourth annual Forsyth County Fire Safety Poster Contest.  

“We have continued to receive a great response each year for the Fire Safety Poster Contest,” Division Chief Jason Shivers said in a press release. “We look forward to hopefully receiving even more poster entries this year.”  

The Fire Safety Poster Contest is open to all third grade students in Forsyth County public and private schools and home-schooled students. Three winners will enjoy a pizza party with their class and local firefighters. The three winners and three runners up will have the honor of having their artwork displayed in county buildings.  

Forsyth County Fire Chief Danny Bowman noted that the contest is a great way to increase fire safety awareness while involving the community’s students.  

“This poster contest is just one way we work to achieve our goal of preventing incidents from occurring through public education,” Bowman said in the release. “It serves as a great opportunity to engage our students in a very positive way.”  

All third grade students in Forsyth County are encouraged to submit their own original designs and artwork. Clipart and copyrighted characters or logos will not be accepted.  

Posters should be created on paper (minimum dimensions of 8.5” by 11” and maximum dimensions of 18” by 24”) with the required release form securely fastened to the back. Posters will not be accepted if they are on poster board.  

Posters should be submitted no later than March 17, 2014 to the following address:  

Forsyth County Fire Department
Attn: Fire Prevention Division
3520 Settingdown Road
Cumming, GA 30028  

A panel of five judges will be judging the submissions. All artwork submitted becomes the property of the Forsyth County Fire Department and may be reproduced.  

The release form and other contest information can be found on the Fire Department page of the Forsyth County Web site at www.forsythco.com.
