~~Sussex County Firefighters Honor
Fire Prevention Poster and Essay Winners
At the November meeting of the Sussex County Volunteer Firefighters Association, firefighters took time out to honor children who were winners in this year’s Fire Prevention Poster and Essay Contest.
Each year children from Kindergarten through 3rd grade have the opportunity to develop a poster on their assigned Fire Prevention Topic.
Children in grades 4 through eight have prepare an essay on their assigned topics.
Children who are first place winners then proceed to the State Competition with the State Awards taking place in January.
This year a special moment took place as, Special Poster Topic, second place winner Aurora Miller, of Rehoboth Elementary, was stricken by serious health issues since she prepared her poster. Arrangements were made to present Aurora her award by Skype so she could share in the program.
