Public educators: What could you do with $1,000?

title

By Lisa Braxton

If you were given $1,000 toward public education activities for your fire department, how would you spend it? The question isn’t academic. If you meet the eligibility requirements for NFPA’s Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year Award, your department could receive this donation. What’s more, as a public educator, you could receive a $1,000 honorarium, travel to the upcoming NFPA Conference & Expo, free Conference registration, and the bronze Sparky the Fire Dog® statuette presented to you during the Conference general session by the NFPA chairman of the board.

It only takes a few minutes to complete the application. Don’t wait. The deadline is February 12.
