Congratulations to the winners of Austin's 15th Annual Flood Safety Poster Contest! We had a couple of hundred great entries, so the competition was stiff.

We would like to thank all the students who entered the contest and all the teachers who encouraged their students to participate. We appreciate your help promoting flood safety awareness. We live in Central Texas’ Flash Flood Alley, so flood safety is extremely important to everyone.
