AUSTIN, Minn. (FOX 47) –  Students in Austin are using their creativity to spread an important message about fire safety.

Fourth graders at Austin’s five elementary schools participated in the Austin Fire Department’s annual Junior Fire Post Contest.

The top two entries from each school were honored with a party at McDonalds on Tuesday.

Firefighters also announced the grand winner and two runners up, which will be entered into the statewide poster competition.

This year’s winner is Hannah Zerke from Southgate Elementary.

“The theme was Look, Listen, Learn so I put ‘look’ for fire, ‘listen’ for the alarm, and ‘learn’ two ways out,” Zerke said.

Claire Noyes and Lacey Olsen were the two runners up.

The other finalists were Ku Moo Gay, Madison Tauger, Lexie Lussler, JJ Bastyr, Kaitlyn McMahon, Axel Larsen, and Lizeth Ruiz Maldonado.

Last year’s nominee from Austin ended up winning the entire state competition.
