2017 Wildfire Awareness Month Poster Coloring Contest

May is Wildfire Awareness Month in South Dakota. To kick it off, South Dakota Wildland Fire, a division of the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, invites kids ages 3-12 to showcase their artistic abilities in this year's Wildfire Awareness Month Poster Coloring Contest.

This year's entries will reflect the theme "Be Ember Aware." Kids living in South Dakota are eligible to participate. All entries must be postmarked by April 21, 2017. Only one entry per child is allowed and submitted posters must be completed by the child with no outside assistance. Each entry must include a completed entry form. Paint, markers, crayons or colored pencils are mediums that may be used.

The contest will have two age brackets with a prize awarded to each group.

· Group 1 (Ages 3-7) Contestants submit the official "Embers on the Prairie" poster.

· Group 2 (Ages 8-12) Contestants submit the official "Forest Cabin" poster.

A Smokey Bear plush toy will be awarded to the contest winners in each category on or before May 31. Posters will not be returned.
