ASSE's 8th Annual Kids' Safety-on-the-Job Poster Contest Deadline Near

During the holiday season, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) is encouraging youth aged 5-14 years old to enter its 8th annual kids' "Safety-on-the-Job" poster contest. To win, children simply have to draw an example of being safe at work on a poster. The contest is open not only to ASSE members' children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, but also to children and schools sponsored by ASSE members.

The contest, which is broken down into five age groups, runs through Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 2010. Winners receive savings bonds, international recognition, and are invited to several events, including the North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH, May 2-8, 2010) kick-off events in Washington, D.C., this May 3. The first prize winners' posters will be displayed on the NAOSH 2010 poster distributed worldwide.

The poster contestants and winners will be recognized at events in Washington, D.C., at the Department of Labor, the U.S. Capitol, and the Smithsonian. Entrants can go to www.asse.org/naosh09 for highlights of last year's events and winners. For a copy of the contest rules and entry form, click here.

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, friends, relatives, etc., do as occupational safety, health, and environmental practitioners.

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 no larger than 11 x 14 inches 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 poster contest entrants receive recognition and are invited, along with their families, all ASSE members, partners, and federal officials to attend the ASSE poster contest awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., on Monday, May 3, as well as a welcome brunch on Sunday, May 2, at the U.S. National Zoo in Washington, D.C.

The contest winners will be announced the first week of March. NAOSH Week runs from May 2-8, 2010, 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 DOL, the U.S. Capitol, and at ASSE's annual Professional Development Conference and Exposition in Baltimore in June 2010.
