Each year, the first full week of February is recognized as Burn Awareness Week (BAW). In 2020, February 2 – 8 will be dedicated to reminding everyone of burn prevention and how to stay safe.

The Manitoba Office of the Fire Commissioner along with the Manitoba Firefighters’ Burn Fund sponsor a Burn Awareness Poster Contest for students in Manitoba from Grade 5 – 8 (with or without the participation of the school) where students can enter their poster artwork representing any burn awareness safety subject.  All posters will go through a judging process and one poster per grade level will be selected with that student winning a $200.00 LEGO Gift Card and their school receiving a $250.00 cash prize from the Firefighters’ Burn Fund.

For more information, contest rules and prize information please see the attached Burn Awareness Week 2020 Letter and BAW Poster Contest Rules and Prize Information.
