The 13th Annual Washington Poison Center Poison Prevention Poster Contest, sponsored by Swedish, launches Monday, December 3rd! Mr. Yuk is calling all students grades Kindergarten through 6th to help him create artwork that shows people how to keep safe from toxic substances. The 2019 Poison Prevention Poster Contest theme is: “Mr. Yuk to the Rescue!”
