ASSE Kicks Off Youth Job Safety Poster Contest; $9,500 Up for Grabs

The American Society of Safety Engineers began its 6th annual "Safety-on-the-Job" poster contest yesterday, inviting members' children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews to pick up their crayons and draw. The contest runs through Valentine's Day, February 14, 2008, and is open to children ages 5 -14 with top prizes to be awarded to those in each of the five age groups who best illustrate being safe on the job.

ASSE members and chapters can also sponsor schools, community organizations, or children from their workplace in the contest, which is aimed at educating children on the importance of safety and health at work and better acquainting them with the job their parents do as occupational safety, health, and environmental practitioners.

Children in five age groups -- 1) ages 5-6; 2) ages 7-8; 3) ages 9-10; 4) ages 11-12; and 5) ages 13-14, are invited to create and submit posters no larger than 11" x 14" that best illustrate being safe at work. The first place winner in each age group receives a $1,000 savings bond; the second place winner receives a $500 savings bond; and the third and fourth place winners receive a $200 savings bond. All entrants receive a prize and are invited, along with their families and all ASSE members, to attend the ASSE poster contest awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., Monday, May 5.

Poster contest winners will be announced the first week of March. The winning poster in each age group will be featured on the ASSE North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH) 2008 poster distributed worldwide. NAOSH Week runs from May 4-10, 2008, and is a tool ASSE uses to promote the importance of occupational safety, health, and the environment in everyone's lives.

In addition, the posters are displayed in Washington, D.C. during NAOSH Week at the U.S. Department of Labor. OSHA's Assistant Secretary of Labor, along with the ASSE President and a representative from the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering will introduce the poster contest winners at the national NAOSH kick-off at the DOL Monday, May 5, prior to the ASSE U.S. Capitol awards event. The posters then will be displayed at ASSE's annual Professional Development Conference and Exposition in June of 2008.
