Home Safety Council Welcomes KPA Contestants to Capitol Hill

Last September, the Home Safety Council (HSC) launched the national Kids Prepare America Contest. The contest asked 3rd and 4th graders across America to take the lead in driving family preparedness efforts at home. To enter, each student designed a picture encouraging others to get ready in case an emergency happens.

Out of over 800 submissions, only ten Grand Prize Winners were selected to travel to Washington, D.C. to attend the 2008 Salute to Home Safety Awards dinner. To help celebrate their great achievements, the Kids Prepare America winners met with and were congratulated by the Senators and Representatives from their home states.

On behalf of the Home Safety Council, thank you to all of the Senators and Representatives who met with their constituents - and congratulations again to all ten Kids Prepare America winners!
