Three Wilson Creek Elementary students were honored at the 20th annual Fire Safety Banquet in Forsyth recently. Olivia Yang, Cindy Qiu and Sonal Churiwal were recently named as winners in a statewide art competition.
As part of Fire Prevention Week, the Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commission and the Georgia Fire Sprinkler Association sponsored a fire safety tips calendar and poster contest. The contest is an opportunity for Georgia students in grades K through 5 to learn about and contribute to fire safety through an art project. The posters had to focus on fire prevention in the home and reflect this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “HAVE 2 WAYS OUT!”
Wilson Creek student Olivia Yang won first place for the 4th Grade Fire Safety Poster, and Cindy Qiu and Sonal Churiwal won in the Calendar Art Contest. All winners were invited to attend the banquet with a guest and receive prizes.
The 2013 Fire Safety Tips Calendar will be sent to over 10,000 schools across Georgia. Wilson Creek was the only Fulton County School that received awards.
