    Thanks to Lamar Outdoor Advertising for donating billboard space again this year, to feature the winning ASSE posters and runners up in locations throughout the U.S. The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) worked with Lamar to feature winners of the ASSE Kids' 'Safety-on-the-Job' Poster Contest in support of worker safety on billboards in or near the winners' hometowns.

Louisville Chapter Sparks Local School Children to Learn SH&E & Art

A recent note and photos from a Louisville, Kentucky school teacher:  
“We learned about the art contest from the web (ASSE kids’ ‘safety-on-the-job’ poster contest) and contacted our local ASSE chapter to see if we could participate. Mr Neason (ASSE Chapter President) visited and spoke to a class on work safety -- he  brought safety gear examples  and  a young intern who fielded a ton of questions. The kids soaked it all up! This is a great learning opportunity that covers many topics that kids should know- civics and community, environment, vocations and careers, science, technology, you name it.  We all need to work somewhere in our future, we might as well learn how to promote a  safe environment before we land those jobs. This contest is helping do just that… The kids are actually G R O O V I N G on the topic and they have learned a lot.
