Congratulations to Brook Packard for winning the
2022 Poison Prevention Poster Contest


We are pleased to announce the winner of our 16th annual Poison Prevention Poster Contest: Brook Packard, a 6th grade student at Finch Elementary in Spokane, Washington.

One hundred thirty-three Washington students in kindergarten through 6th grade submitted posters showing how Mr. Yuk and the Washington Poison Center help keep everyone safe from harmful substances. This year, the Washington Poison Center partnered with Seattle Children’s on promoting the poster contest and developing new online poison safety curriculum for elementary-aged students. A panel of judges from Seattle Children’s selected Brook’s poster as the winner: “Brook’s poster makes it clear that Mr. Yuk is available to help everyone,” stated Isabell Sakamoto, Suicide and Injury Prevention Program Manager at Seattle Children’s. “We love how Brook included different poisonous products to be on the lookout for, like medicine, cleaning products, and fungus. This poster is a great reminder that help is always available by calling the Washington Poison Center!”

Brook’s artwork was transformed into the official Washington State Poison Prevention Poster for National Poison Prevention Week, March 20-26, 2022. Organizations may download the poster here or order print copies by contacting mking@wapc.org. Mr. Yuk and Brook will also virtually meet with Washington state legislators to discuss her artwork, poison prevention, and how legislators help keep Washingtonians safe.

We encourage you to join us in celebrating National Poison Prevention Week!
