Coloring Contest

Each year the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department hosts the Annual Fire Safety Poster Contest.

Get out your markers, crayons, water colors, finger paints, pens and pencils! Get a fresh piece of paper, and show the Town of Castle Rock what you know about fire safety. Do you want to be a partner in fire safety?  Then join us in our 18th annual poster contest!  

This year’s theme is: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!”

The theme is focused on families learning two ways out of every room in their home in case of a fire. Make a home escape plan with your family before drawing your poster for a better idea for your entry! Don’t forget to also discuss your meeting place outside the home.

As with all contests, there are rules that need to be followed:

  • You must be a student in a Castle Rock school and attending third through the sixth grade
  • Posters must be made on a white 8 1/2" by 11" paper
  • Please DO NOT submit on lined paper
  • Please use all of your creativity and plenty of color
  • Please complete the entry form and feel free to use the back of the entry form to draw your picture
  • Only one entry per student 
  • Theme must be used in the drawing or your submission will not be counted

When you enter, we all win!

You have a very important message to get out to all of the residents of Castle Rock. If your entry is selected, it will be made into a decal that is placed on the side of a fire truck where it will ride throughout the entire year. These messages are seen by almost every resident and visitor of Castle Rock.

Fire Chief Art Morales will select the four posters placed on the fire trucks for the year.

This year we have added another prize! One lucky student will win an ice cream social for their entire class. With special guests, local Castle Rock firefighters! 
This year's contest runs August 14-28, 2017. We hope you join us! If your school is not participating this year, print off the entry form and submit your entry to Fire Headquarters, Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
