On November 15, Mason Intermediate fourth grade fire safety contest winners enjoyed a pizza party at the Mason fire station on Cedar Village Drive. Mason firefighters chose Casey Calpin, Ryan Guo, Vishva Kelkar, Maeryn Kelly,Max Liao, Katie Miesch, Hannah Miller, Ava Minogue, Ashley Smith, Rino Takahashi, Louisa Wachter, Sarah Wang, and Lance Zhang's posters as the most outstanding.
This is the 13th year that MI art teacher Maggie Moschell’s students have participated in this statewide contest. At the pizza party, students learned that Louisa Wachter's poster will be entered into the state contest. Moschell’s students have won the state contest seven times. This year’s state winners will be announced in May, and their posters will be displayed on the State Fire Marshall’s website.
October is fire safety awareness month, and to celebrate, Ohio fire departments invite children to submit hand-drawn messages and pictures of how to prevent fires or how to safely respond in case a fire occurs.
