We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Flood Safety Poster Contest! The judges found it extremely challenging to select only 12 winners from such a creative and artistic mix of posters.
We would like to thank all of the students and teachers who participated in this event as well as our sponsors. Please email Susan Garnett to join our mailing list for the 2020 poster contest.
This contest is an important way to educate students about the risk of flooding that we all face in Central Texas. Flooding is Austin’s top weather-related emergency and the number-one cause of weather-related fatalities.
