Local youth win SD Wildfire Awareness Month contest


South Dakota Ag Connection - May 29, 2018

PIERRE, SD - The South Dakota Department of Agriculture Wildland Fire division announced the winners of their Wildfire Awareness Month Coloring Contest. Ian Cammack of Enning won the 3-7 age group and Brooklynn Baird of Whitewood won the 8-12 age group. Each will be awarded a plush Smokey Bear toy.

The contest theme this year was, "One Less Spark, One Less Wildfire" which encourages members of the community to learn about the danger of embers during a wildfire and what they can do to reduce the risk.

South Dakota Wildfire Awareness Month is planned by interagency cooperation and was created to promote wildfire awareness, safety, and prevention through public events held throughout South Dakota to remind citizens of the dangers of wildland fire and the simple steps that should be followed to prepare for and prevent them. This year South Dakota has joined a multi-state proclamation with eight other states in promoting Wildfire Awareness during the month of May 2017.

There were over 350 entries in this year's contst. To learn more about South Dakota Wildland Fire Awareness Month and to see other events, please visit our website: sdwildfireawareness.com.
