2018 Flood Safety Poster Contest

Central Texas School Children Grades 1-8 and your teachers, family and friends!

Austin’s 2018 annual Flood Safety Poster Contest is now open for your creative expressions! Help Austin be safer with this important message:

Save Yourself! Turn Around – Don’t Drown.

The 2018 poster contest is a fun way for children to build flood safety awareness and help Central Texans to make safer decisions in flooding conditions. The main message of your posters is to turn around, rather than drive through a flooded low water crossing.

Flooding is Austin’s top, weather-related emergency and the number-one cause of weather-related fatalities. Austin is in the heart of Flash Flood Alley and flash flooding can happen at any time. Flood safety awareness is one way to better protect drivers, passengers and emergency responders from flash flooding risks.
