2009 National Radon Poster Contest Deadline Draws Near

Less than two weeks remain before the Oct. 15 entry deadline for the 2009 National Radon Poster Contest. The National Safety Council, in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, said it is sponsoring the children's contest to generate interest, enthusiasm, and action about radon and to increase the number of homes tested for radon.

Each state, tribe, and territory has a radon poster contest. Each of these judging panels will submit its winner and two runners-ups for judging in the national contest. To find out where to submit your entry for judging, visit www.nsc.org/issues/radon/map.htm.

The winning national poster will be unveiled at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., in January 2009. The national winner, a parent, and teacher (or sponsoring organization's representative) will win an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., to participate in the ceremony. Also, the national winning poster will be reproduced into a nationally distributed poster.

The contest is open to children ages 9-14. The poster entries must address one of the following topics:

- What is radon?

- Where does radon come from?

- How does radon get into our homes?

- Radon can cause lung cancer

- Test your home for radon

All artwork must be original. The student's name must not be on the front of the artwork, and posters should have a title on the front. The topic and title must be on the Artwork Submission Form (available at http://downloads.nsc.org/word/2009ArtworkSubmissionForm.doc). Entries should be on white paper. Materials used to create the poster may include crayon, markers, paint (watercolor, tempera, acrylic), collage, photographs, or computer graphics. Lettering and message should be large enough to reproduce well. All pencil markings should be erased. Copyrighted characters, product logos, and trademarked or brand names cannot be used.
