Congratulations to the winners of the City of Austin's 12th Annual Flood Safety Poster Contest. 904 kids, grades 1 to 8, entered the poster contest in 2017, illustrating the theme, “Save Yourself! Turn Around – Don’t Drown."
This contest is an important way to educate students about the risk of flooding that we all face in Central Texas. Flooding is Austin’s top weather-related emergency and the number-one cause of weather-related fatalities.
Gift card for $100, $75, $50 and $25, for 1st through 4th place winners respectively
