The City of Austin's annual Flood Safety Poster Contest closed on March 24, 2015. The contest was open to kids in grades 1 to 8 with the theme, “Save Yourself! Turn Around – Don’t Drown."
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.
