ASSE Kicks Off Poster Contest
September 30, 2009

In its continuing efforts to educate youth on what it means to be safe at work and what occupational safety and health professionals do every day to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recently launched its 8th annual kids’ “Safety-on-the-Job” poster contest. The contest is open not only to ASSE members’ children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, but also to children and schools sponsored by ASSE members. The contest runs from September 19th through Valentine’s Day, February 14th, 2010, and is open to children aged 5 — 14 with top prizes to be awarded to those in each of the five age groups that best illustrate being safe on the job.

Additionally, the savings bond awards will be presented in ceremonies in Washington, D.C., during the 2010 North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week kick-off events at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the U.S. Capitol and the Smithsonian.

The poster contest winners will be announced the first week of March. The winning poster in each age group is featured on the ASSE NAOSH Week 2010 poster distributed worldwide. NAOSH Week runs from May 2nd-8th, 2010, and is a tool ASSE uses to promote the importance of occupational safety, health and the environment in everyone’s lives. In addition, the posters are displayed in Washington, D.C. during NAOSH Week at the DOL, the U.S. Capitol and at ASSE’s annual Professional Development Conference and Exposition in Baltimore in June 2010.
