The “What to do to Make it Through” campaign invites students to participate in a drawing contest! The contest is intended to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and catastrophes (a big disaster, like an earthquake). The contest also encourages elementary school staff, students and their families to take action to prepare.
We are looking for a creative drawing or design that shows how a student would build a kit for their family prior to a disaster. The design could represent an idea such as identifying unique needs of family members (including pets) that should be made when preparing a kit, gathering supplies for a family’s 7 day kit, or creating different kits for different places your family goes (work, school, vehicle, etc.).
The contest is open to elementary school students in King, Kitsap, Island, Mason, Pierce, Skagit, Snohomish and Thurston counties. Two lucky winners will be chosen to receive prizes for their school!
