SALT LAKE CITY — Posters created by students are up for a vote in the Department of Environmental Quality's radon poster contest.
Utah students, ages 9-14, have submitted their artwork, and Utahns are being invited to vote online for their favorite poster. Voting is at www.radon.utah.gov, and only one vote per email address will be accepted.
Online voting runs through Oct. 30. Posters will be judged on content accuracy, visual communication of topic, reproducibility and originality.
Utah’s first-place winner will receive $300 and the student's school or organization will receive $500. Second- and third-place winners will receive $100 each. Winners will be entered in the national contest where they may be eligible to receive up to $1,000.
