“Mr. Yuk to the Rescue!” is the theme for the Washington Poison Center (WAPC) 2014 Poster Contest. The winning poster will be part of the Poison Prevention Week campaign, to be celebrated next March.

Mr. Yuk rescues children from accidents involving medications, household chemicals, pesticides, bites, stings and more.

The Poison Center is looking for young artists to create eye-catching posters that highlight poison safety awareness.  All 6- to 12-year-olds in Washington state are invited to participate. There will be lots of prizes, including a $500 check card, for the winner. WAPC will accept poster entries postmarked before Jan. 6, 2014.

For more information on the poster contest, including the contest entry form and rules, visit www.wapc.org.
