National Fire Safety Poster Campaign

Help your community stay safe from fire and win prizes!

October 6–12, 2019 is Fire Prevention Week. Each year, the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada (AFAC) launches our national Poster Campaign to coincide with the theme of Fire Prevention Week. Full-time students from preschool to Grade 12 attending a Band or federally operated school are eligible to participate.

This year’s theme is: Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and Practice your Escape

Packages will be mailed out to every band office and to every band and federally operated school.

To take part, students create artwork in one of five categories:
  1. Preschool to Grade 12 use multimedia to create messaging on this years theme (this could be a video, animation, cartoon strip, photo essay—they are only limited by their imagination). Individual or group entries are allowed in this category.
  2. Preschool to Grade 2 colour the provided poster.
  3. Grades 3 to 5 create a poster on this years theme.
  4. Grades 6 to 8 create a poster on this years theme.
  5. Presidents Award – special needs students from preschool to grade 12 are invited to colour the provided poster or create their own art using any medium.

Send the artwork to us by December 13, 2019:
 7-3405 Mountain House Road,
Williams Lake, BC
V2G 5L4

(It is OK to fold the posters to make it easier to mail them.)

All the submissions are entered in their regional contest. The winning art from each region goes on to the national contest.

National contest prizes include first place prizes for your school and exciting technology prizes for the student artists.
