2011 School Safety Poster Contest
Each year, as part of the Labor Commission’s community relations program and by utilizing money from the WPS Fund, the Commission sponsors a “Take Safety Seriously” poster contest specifically aimed at promoting safety awareness for Utah’s future workforce.
The WPS School Poster Competition, in its 14th year now, is currently open to all middle and junior high schools across Utah, including Charter Schools and private schools. Cash awards are given to the winners and matching awards to the school’s art program for participating. This year, the level of interest and participation was unprecedented with over 1,700 entries submitted by 59 different middle and junior high schools throughout Utah. The top 12 entries are included in the Labor Commission’s annual safety calendar. We print about 15,000 copies and they are distributed without cost to schools, businesses, and community based organizations for purposes of increasing workplace safety awareness throughout the state of Utah.
