FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. – The Forsyth County Fire Department is inviting local third-grade students to display their artistic talents while promoting fire safety by participating in the fourth annual Forsyth County Fire Safety Poster Contest.

The contest is open to all Forsyth County public, private and home-schooled students in the third grade.

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.

“This poster contest is just one way we work to achieve our goal of preventing incidents from occurring through public education,” said Forsyth County Fire Chief Danny Bowman.

Posters should depict one of the following fire safety themes: get low and go under smoke; practice your home fire drill; test your smoke alarm for life and watch what you heat to prevent home fires.

Posters should be submitted no later than March 17 and mailed to the Forsyth County Fire Department, 3520 Settingdown Road in Cumming.

The release form and other contest information can be found on the fire department page of the Forsyth County website at www.forsythco.com.
