Kids Severe Weather Poster Contest Winners Announced!


The moment we have all been waiting for! This weekend the Winners of the 2009 Kids Severe Weather were announced at Downtown Disney, Lake Buena Vista on Saturday, January 31st. More than 400 students statewide participated in the poster contest this year!  In addition, the top finalists’ artwork will be displayed in the halls of the Historic State Capital and the State Emergency Operation Center during the next two weeks.

The first place winner of the poster contest was Viktoria Friedrich, a 5th grade student at Lost Lake Elementary School in Lake County. Additional information about the Regional Winners can be found here. Images of all 7 of the Regional Winners’ Poster will be posted shortly on our website and here on our blog!

We are really excited on how well this event went and for all of the beautiful posters that were sent to our Chapter. I’d like to say thanks for everyone on such a wonderful job and can’t wait to see next year’s posters!
