Polo Ridge Elementary School, in Charlotte, North Carolina, won first place in the Charlotte Fire Department’s 25º Annual Bulletin Board Contest. According to the fire department, the first-place win included a surprise awards ceremony at the school last week, as well as a check for $3,000, a plaque, student and teacher prizes, and the opportunity to keep the traveling trophy for a year.

During the awards celebration, students demonstrated how to get low and go under smoke, and divided into teams in a race to help firefighters put on their turnout gear.

Charlotte Fire Department and the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal’s Office sponsor the program, in IMG_1317 which third grade students created a bulletin board focused on this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm. Schools submitted a photo of their bulletin board and a two-minute video in which students explained how they created the entry and how it ties in with the theme.

This year, 30 schools participated and six took home prizes.
