Washington Poison Center 13th Annual Poison Prevention Poster Contest
Teaching elementary age students grades K-6 about the importance of poison prevention, and making good choices about their health, is a priority for us at the Washington Poison Center. One way we reach elementary age students is through our annual Poison Prevention Poster Contest that coincides with National Poison Prevention Week, March 17-23, 2019.
Now in its 13th year, the annual Washington Poison Center Poison Prevention Poster Contest asks students to consider how Mr. Yuk helps keep people safe from toxic substances. Students in both public and private elementary schools throughout Washington State (approximately 1,100 elementary schools) are encouraged to participate, using their creativity to develop life-saving artwork and messages through a poster format. The theme for the 2019 Washington Poison Center Poison Prevention Poster Contest is: “Mr. Yuk to the Rescue!” The poster contest is scheduled to launch on December 3, 2018 and run through January 31, 2019, with the winner announced on March 6, 2019.
One talented student in grades K-6 will be chosen as the Mr. Yuk Poison Prevention Poster Contest winner. Their winning design will be used as the official Poison Prevention Week poster for Washington State. The winner also receives a special Mr. Yuk award, a visit to their school by Mr. Yuk, and a trip to Olympia in the Yuk Mobile to meet their home district legislators.
