Add weather and art education to your classroom: poster contest

2/11/2020

The Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness is sponsoring its yearly poster contest for all grade 1-6 students, offering teachers a way to incorporate weather and art education into classroom curriculum. 

OSCWA’s Severe Weather Awareness Poster Contest is designed to combine a student’s originality and artistic talent with his or her ability to share the important message of how people can protect themselves and others from the dangers and hazards that accompany severe weather in Ohio. April 15 is the deadline for each school to submit first-place posters to its regional National Weather Service office. The weather service will announce the regional winners by the end of May.

The committee encourages all public, private, charter and home schools to participate. Each school will submit its first-place posters to its regional National Weather Service office. The weather service will announce the regional winners by the end of May. For complete rules and forms, including submission instructions for home-schooled students, click here.

Additional resources are available to teachers who want to add weather education to their classroom curriculum including a Severe Weather Safety Teachers Guide, student coloring sheet and student puzzle and activity sheet.
