ASSE Kicks off Annual 'Safety-on-the-Job' Poster Contest

ASSE has launched its 7th annual kids' "Safety-on-the-Job" poster contest, which is open to ASSE members' children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, and will have a Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 2009, deadline. ASSE members can also sponsor local schools, co-workers' children, and more to enter. The contest is open to children 5-14 with top prizes to be awarded to those in each of the five age groups that best illustrate being safe on the job.

The winning poster in each age group will be featured on the ASSE North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH) 2009 poster distributed worldwide. This year's them for NAOSH Week is "Safety Means Always Coming Home," a theme that reverberated throughout the hundreds of posters received from children over the past six years of the contest. NAOSH Week runs from May 3-9, 2009, and is a tool ASSE uses to promote the importance of occupational safety, health, and the environment in everyone's lives. Occupational Safety and Health Professional Day is May 6, 2009.

Children in five age groups--ages 5-6, ages 7-8, ages 9-10, ages 11-12, and ages 13-14--are invited to create and submit posters 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., on Monday, May 4, along with other planned activities. Last year ASSE held events at the U.S. Capitol, the National Gallery of Art, the National Zoo and the U.S. Department of Labor.

Winners will be announced the first week of March. Entry forms and contest rules can be found at www.asse.org/newsroom.
