Safety Kids Calendar Contest

Written by

I'm honored to once again be the Master of Cermonies for the annual Safety Kids Calendar Contest awards presentation tonight at the downtown Akron-Summit County Public Library branch. It's an event I look forward to doing each year and this marks the 18th year that Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh has sponsored it. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders from Summit County schools are invited to submit posters based on the "12 Rules for Staying Safe." Their artwork is fantastic and their messages resonate. There is a different rule for each month of the year and the winners' posters are reproduced on one of the twelve calendar pages for the upcoming year. The grand prize winner's art goes on the calendar's cover. The rules of safety are also depicted on billboards across town throughout the year and in public service announcements on WBNX -TV 55 during the holiday season. Click here to see last year's submission and maybe I'll see you and your talented children tonight.
