Radon Poster Contest

Win a Trip to Washington, D.C.

Guidelines and Criteria

Each year the Oklahoma Radon Program sponsors the Oklahoma Radon Poster Contest.  The goal of the contest is to raise awareness for radon testing and inform people of the danger of radon in their homes.

Oklahoma contest winners will be sent to the National Radon Poster Contest. The winner of the national contest will receive an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the winner, a parent, and a teacher (or sponsoring organization’s representatives).  They will participate in an awards ceremony during which the winning entry is unveiled.  The poster will also be reproduced and distributed nationally to promote radon awareness.
