FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. – The Forsyth County Fire Department recognized the winners and runners up for the department’s 2013 Fire Safety Poster Contest.

The three winners are: Audrey Padgett, a student at Haw Creek Elementary School; Ava Leavitt, a student at Shiloh Point Elementary School; and Shayla Noelle Zwingman, a student at Brookwood Elementary School.

All three were treated to a pizza party with their class and local firefighters.

The three runners up are: Rileigh Sheridan, a student at Matt Elementary School; Caroline Willman, a student at Brookwood Elementary School; and Pia Ghosh, a student at Brookwood Elementary School.

The three winners and three runners up will have the honor of having their artwork displayed in county buildings. The students were also recognized for their poster designs by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners at their May 2 meeting.

“We are certainly proud of these students, and of every student who submitted a poster,” Fire Chief Danny Bowman said. “We hope that the positive fire safety messages these young artists conveyed through their posters will be impactful to all who see them.”

All third grade students in Forsyth County public and private schools, as well as home-schooled students, were encouraged to submit their own original designs and artwork for the poster contest. This was the third year the contest was held.
