As Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal, I invite all second and third grade students to participate in a poster contest to promote fire safety. Winning poster designs will be displayed on the Office of State Fire Marshal’s website, and every child who participates will receive a personal thank you for helping keep North Carolina fire safe!
Second and third grade teachers who want their classes to participate should:
- Use the teaching tips below to discuss fire safety with your students.
- Print out a poster template in landscape view for each child. Ask them to draw a poster related to smoke alarm and fire safety. Each child should write their name, teacher’s name and school’s name on the back of their poster.
- Fill out the submission form, including a list of all participating students. Gather all posters and the submission form and mail, without folding, to:
Fire Prevention Week Posters
1201 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC 27699-1201
Posters must be received by Sept. 30, 2016.
I greatly appreciate the hard work you do every day to educate North Carolina’s young people, and I am excited about the opportunity to partner with you for this year’s Fire Prevention Week. If you have any questions, please contact Colin Day, Assistant Director of Public Information, at 919-807-6014 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
