University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Radon Education Program is sponsoring a poster contest for all Nevada children between the ages of 9 and 14. The first-place winner will receive $50 and the second- and third-place entries will receive $25 each. The deadline for entries is Oct. 31, and the top three posters will be entered in the 2011 National Radon Poster Contest by Nov. 15.
The top three national winners will receive an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for the Award Ceremony on Jan. 14. The winning national poster also will be reproduced on next year’s poster contest promotional materials.
Contestants can be enrolled in a public, private, territorial, tribal, Department of Defense or home school.
Children also can enter through a sponsoring club, such as an art, computer or science club, scouting organization or 4-H club.
