The Collierville Fire Department is proud to congratulate the 2017 Fire Prevention Poster Contest winners for the Town of Collierville. Exceptional posters reflecting this year’s theme "Every Second Counts; Plan 2 Ways Out" were submitted by several participating Collierville Schools and homeschool programs; however, only one winning poster from each grade level (K-12) may be sent to the State Fire Marshal’s Office for the state-level contest. (Pictured: Tara Oaks Assistant Principal Jennifer Scharf with Kandace Dai, 4th Grade and Bryant Dai, 1st Grade.)
City poster winners will be recognized at a reception held in their honor on Saturday, Oct. 7. Winners will receive an engraved medal and a certificate. Their posters will be on display at the Collierville Morton Museum from Oct. 9 through Oct. 21.
Posters from each participating Tennessee community will be judged during December in Nashville, TN; state winners will be notified afterwards and a list of winners and pictures of winning posters will be posted on the State Fire Marshal’s website. Statewide winners will receive a First Place Ribbon, a Certificate of Achievement from the Governor, $50, and One Free Night (for the winner and their family) at a Nashville Hotel (TBD) to attend the National Fire Protection Association Poster Awards Banquet.
