Coloring Contest

NFPA Fire Prevention Week 2020

Each year the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department hosts the Annual Fire Safety Poster Contest through schools all across Castle Rock.

Our 21st annual poster contest starts on Thursday, Oct. 1 and goes until Friday, Oct. 30!  

2020 contest theme is:  

"Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!"

Kitchen Safety Tips

  • Keep a close eye on what you are cooking; never leave cooking unattended.
  • Keep anything that can catch fire- oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, etc., at least three feet away from heated cooking appliances.
  • Be on alert!  If you are sleepy or distracted, do NOT use heated cooking appliances.
  • Set a timer! Ensure you have a reminder to check your food once it's done. 

As with all contests, there are rules that need to be followed:

  • You must be a student in a Castle Rock school and attending third through the sixth grade
  • Posters must be made on a white 8 1/2" by 11" paper
  • Please DO NOT submit on lined paper
  • Please use all of your creativity and plenty of color
  • Please complete the entry form and feel free to use the back of the entry form to draw your picture
  • Only one entry per student 
  • Theme must be used in the drawing or your submission will not be counted

When you enter, we all win! 

You have a very important message to get out to all of the residents of Castle Rock. If your entry is selected, it will be made into a decal that is placed on the side of a fire truck where it will ride throughout the entire year. These messages are seen by almost every resident and visitor of Castle Rock!
