The Iowa Department of Public Health is looking for budding Iowa artists to create an emergency preparedness poster. Spokesperson Nicole Peckumn says the poster contest theme is “Protect Iowa Health: Prepare Because You Care” and the contest is open to 6th, 7th and 8th graders.
She says they’ll select a grand prize winner from all entries and the poster will be distributed statewide in the spring and summer. Peckumn says the creators of the top posters will get a prize. She says the grand prize winner will receive a 200-dollar savings bond. There will also be runnerup prizes. The contest runs through February 24th.
