Students from all over the Harlingen Consolidated School District have recently been awarded for their creative artwork about Fire Safety.

Students ages K-12 were encouraged to submit a piece of their own artwork to the Harlingen Fire Prevention Poster Contest. The winners of the contest were chosen by the student’s amount of creativity and incorporation. This year’s theme was “Kitchen Fire Safety”.

Fire Inspector, Richard Alvarez and other members of the Harlingen City Council PTA helped present the awards to the first, second, and third place winners of the contest.

Members of the Harlingen Fire Department co-hosted the 2014 Fire Prevention Month Poster Contest Awards Ceremony with HCISD and Harlingen PTSA.

The winners of the city contest are eligible for the state and national contests.
