Wildfire Awareness Month “Tame the Flame” Poster Coloring Contest

To kick off the South Dakota Wildfire Awareness Month, South Dakota Wildland Fire is calling all kids, ages 3-12, to showcase their artistic abilities in this year’s Wildfire Awareness Month Poster Coloring Contest.

This year’s entries will reflect the theme: “Tame the Flame.” Kids living in South Dakota are eligible to participate. All entries must be postmarked by April 24, 2015. Only one entry per child is allowed and submitted posters must be completed by the child with no outside assistance. Each entry must include a completed entry form. Paint, markers, crayons or colored pencils are mediums that may be used. 

The contest will have two age brackets with a prize awarded to each group.

•        Group 1 (Ages 3-7) Contestants submit the official “Campfire Dead Out” poster.

•        Group 2 (Ages 8-12) Contestants submit the official “Firefighter and Friends” poster.

A Smokey Bear plush toy will be awarded to the contest winners in each category on or before May 31. Posters will not be returned.
