Fire Marshal Rocco Grosso has announced this year’s fire prevention poster contest will continue through Nov. 1. The theme is Fire Prevention — Everyone/ Everyday. Its purpose is to promote child and adult awareness of fire prevention responsibilities.
The annual statewide competition for fourth and fifth graders is run by elementary school teachers in cooperation with the contest sponsors: The Connecticut Fire Marshals’ Association, Office of the State Fire Marshal, Connecticut Fire Chiefs’ Association, State Board of Education and the Connecticut FAIR Plan (representing the insurance industry).
All winning posters on the county level will be exhibited in various areas around the state, including the Capitol during the month of October. From these, a state winner will be chosen to promote fire prevention throughout the state.
Each school’s art teachers have contest rules.
