Annual ASSE Kids' Safety Contest Winners Announced
March 18, 2010

Children from Florida, South Carolina, Virginia and Kuwait were the first place winners in the 8th annual American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) kids’ Safety-on-the-Job poster contest for best illustrating “being safe on the job.” ASSE received 850+ posters from children aged 5-14 from 34 U.S. states and six countries for the contest aimed at teaching children what ASSE members – their parents, relatives and friends – do every day to prevent injury and illness at work.

The contest is open to ASSE members’ children, friends, co-workers’ children and/or organizations and schools they sponsor. The first place posters are featured on the 2010 North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH, May 2nd-8th) Week poster sent to thousands of businesses worldwide. The contest winners, contestants and families will also be recognized during ASSE NAOSH Week kick-off events May 2nd and 3rd in Washington, D.C., at the U.S. Capitol, the Smithsonian and the U.S. Department of Labor. First place winners receive a $1,000 savings bond.

Winners from Virginia included First Place in the 9-10 age group — Taylin Crosen, of Winchester, Virginia, and Third Place in the 9-10 age group — Abigail C. Helser, from Onancock, Virginia.
