The Tinley Park Fire Department and the Tinley Park Fire Prevention Bureau honored students and faculty from area schools for their participation in a annual poster contest held every October during Fire Prevention Month.
Colorful artwork decorated the Harald Viking Lodge as winners and their families attended the yearly award ceremony and dinner. The 2015 theme was, “Hear the Beep Where you Sleep.” Frontrunners best depicting the theme were first chosen by the schools, by grade, and then brought to the fire station where citizen and village employee votes determined the Overall and Grand Prize winners.
Winners included Miriam Akhal, Nolan Loerop, Chance Swick, Bella Lucia, Spencer Kick, Melanie Piunti, Jenna Nimer, Jamiyah Jenkins and faculty member Mrs. Carol Friberg. These winners are representatives from Millennium School, Southwest Chicago Christian, Memorial School, Trinity Lutheran School, Grissom Middle School, Bannes School and Tinley Park High School.
Congratulations to all who participated!
