The City of Austin is holding its annual Flood Safety Poster Contest. Kids, grades 1 to 8, can enter their posters, illustrating the theme, “Save Yourself! Turn Around – Don’t Drown,” and have a chance to win several great prizes.
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.
