Radon Poster Contest—ends October 31

Radon Poster Contest an Opportunity for Nevada Youth Who Wish to Win Big

“Do you know a youth, ages 9 to 14, who could create a poster to increase awareness on radon? Are you a youth in that age range who would like to win between $45 to $75 and fun promotional items? If you are a part of either group, this blog post is a surprise just for you.

The 2019 Nevada Radon Poster Contest is an opportunity for students to get creative and teach their peers and adults about what radon is, where it comes from, how it gets into homes, how it can cause lung cancer or the importance of testing one’s house for the gas. This contest is offered by the Nevada Radon Education Program (NREP) and is sponsored by University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health to increase the public’s awareness of the radioactive gas.”

“NREP must receive all submissions at the Washoe County Cooperative Extension Office by 5 p.m. on Oct. 31.”
