The City of Austin is kicking off its annual Flood Safety Poster Contest with the theme “Turn Around – Don’t Drown.” Kids age 6 to 13 are welcome to enter and have a chance to win prizes including:

Gift cards worth $25 to $100.

A ride on Lady Bird Lake in a swift water rescue boat with an emergency responder.

First place winners in each of the three categories will have their poster printed on a CapMetro bus.

The city says its contest is an important way to educate students about the risk of flash flooding in Central Texas. Flooding is Austin’s top weather-related emergency, and approximately 75 percent of flood fatalities in Texas occur in vehicles.

Deadline for entries is March 24. For full guidelines and entry instructions, visit
