Safety Month Poster Contest Winners

NSAA has developed a safety awareness poster contest for kids. The contest targets fourth, fifth and sixth graders, but any elementary-age child can participate. Students are asked to create a poster related to any one of the seven points in "Your Responsibility Code." Two winners are picked annually, one in each of the following categories "Most Creative Design" and "Best Overall Safety Message". Prizes are awarded.

NSAA ski area members promote and administer the safety poster contest for kids in their respective local community and schools. Ski areas will judge and select their local winners. Local winning posters are then entered by the ski area in the national contest, giving local kids a chance to be recognized nationally for their winning design. Contact your local ski area for more information on contests in your area. Click here for official Rules and Judging Criteria.
