CO Poster

In an effort to raise awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide in the home, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) held a poster contest for middle-school students in which the students designed posters on carbon monoxide safety. Nearly 450 entries from 6th, 7th and 8th graders were narrowed down to just nine finalists, coming from  states throughout the nation, including New Hampshire, New York, California and more.  Each finalist received $250, but in the end, Trachell, from Hawaii, took home the grand prize: an additional $500.
