2017 Radon Poster Contest Winners Announced
The 2017 Radon Poster Contest winners have been announced as part of National Radon Action Month. The American Lung Association (ALA) and Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD) co-sponsor the poster contest with support from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).
“Radon is the leading cause of death in homes and the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers. The only way to know your radon has a radon problem is to test,” said Patrick Daniels, chair of the CRCPD Radon Committee.
Children ages 9-14 were eligible to participate in the nationwide contest to promote radon awareness. Ten states submitted their winning entries for consideration. The American Lung Association has provided $1,500 in prize money to the three winners.
The 2017 posters winners and their prizes include:
First Place: Victoria R., Florida – $1000;
Second Place: Joshua F., Nevada – $300; and
Third Place: Lucille D., Colorado – $200.
