Poster Contest Winners!

A student at Field School was the Grand Prize Winner for the Annual Elmhurst “Learn Not to Burn” Poster Contest for 2016. The contest is part of the Fire Safety Program presented to all fourth grade students in District 205 as well as private schools in Elmhurst. Students work on their poster designs under the guidance of their art teachers. The theme of the winning poster was "Practice Your Escape Route". This winning poster was published and distributed throughout Elmhurst before Fire Prevention Week in October. It's an honor that a Field School student's creativity and hard work created such an important message about fire safety. Congratulations!
