The City of Austin is holding its annual Flood Safety Poster Contest. Kids, grades 1 to 8, can enter their posters, illustrating the theme, “Save Yourself! Turn Around – Don’t Drown,” and have a chance to win several great prizes.
WeatherFest 2015 is a FREE, family friendly event that's all about Texas weather — both good and bad. And it's a great place to draw your flood safety poster: Sunday, February 1, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Bullock Museum.
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.
Gift card, $100 to $25 for first, second, third and fouth place winners.
