Poster Contest

The Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department, along with Sign Design, presents the 16th annual Fire Safety Poster Contest.

Get out your favorite coloring tools, grab a fresh sheet of paper and unleash your creativity! The Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department wants to see your most colorful ideas of safety based on this year’s theme. 

This year we are asking entrants to use the theme: Hear the beep where you sleep. Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm!

As with all contests, there are rules that need to be followed:

  • You must be a student in a Castle Rock school and attending third through the sixth grade
  • Posters must be made on a white 8 1/2″ by 11″ paper
  • Please DO NOT submit on lined paper unless it is part of your picture
  • Please use all of your creativity and plenty of color
  • Please put your name, school, teacher and grade on the entry form
  • Entries will not be accepted without an entry form 
  • Only one entry per student
When you enter, we all win!  
You have a very important message to get out to all of the residents of Castle Rock. If your entry is selected, it will be made into a decal that is placed on the side of a fire truck where it will ride throughout the entire year. These messages are seen by almost every resident and visitor of Castle Rock.

Sign Design donates a portion of the decals to Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department to display throughout the year.

Fire Chief Art Morales, will make the final decision as to what four posters will be riding on the fire trucks for the year.

Entries are due to your teacher no later than Aug. 27. No entries will be accepted after that date.

For more information, contact our Fire and Life Safety Educator/Inspector by email.
