The Paradigm Challenge’s Make or Bake for Change contest needs your votes

title

By Lauren Backstrom

We mentioned to you previously the Paradigm Challenge campaign, which NFPA supports, designed to get kids ages 7 to 18 involved in reducing deaths and injuries due to home fires by contributing their own fire safety ideas.

This month, there is a great contest underway: Make or Bake for Change. Because almost half of all home fires start in the kitchen and unattended cooking is the primary cause, kids were asked to submit a photo that showed something they made or baked spelling out the word ‘change.’ The 10 entries with the most votes by the end of the month will receive cash prizes of up to $1000.

Some great entries were uploaded – so take a look! You can vote once a day for as many entries as you like. Good luck to all of the entrants!
