EHSS local students win fire prevention poster contest

“Two of our current students, Jade Curtin and Piper McDonald, both 4th graders and residents of the town of Fairfield, won first and second place respectively, in the recent local Fire Prevention Poster Contest for their creative and original entries,” announced Benjamin N. Powers, headmaster of Eagle Hill Southport School (EHSS). “They’re excited and the school is too! We look forward to when they are recognized by the local Fire Department for such a thoughtful and important message about fire prevention.”

On Thursday, February 4, Fairfield Fire Marshal and Assistant Chief William Kessler, Deputy Fire Marshal Lt. Ray Bullard, and Fire Inspector Hank Ferance will present their winning certificates to the students at the school’s daily morning meeting at 8:10 a.m.

The Fire Prevention Poster Contest was held this past fall for 4th and 5th grade students. This year’s theme was “Fire Prevention – Everyone/Everyday.” The goal of the contest was to create awareness with students and families that preventing fires requires everyone being alert everyday to the dangers that cause fires. The artwork requirements included an original design on 12” x 18” paper that would illustrate this message and be easy to reproduce.

There were seven schools in the Fairfield area that participated and there were a total of 681 entries. The girls’ submissions came in first and second place overall. Miss Curtin’s poster will now be submitted to the county level competition. The final winning statewide poster will be reproduced on all local Fire Prevention materials and distributed to local towns and their residents.
