The Southwest Utah Public Health Department annually sponsors a local Radon Poster Contest to promote the education of our citizens about the hazards of radon.  We would like to the congratulate our awesome winners of the contest, which are as follows:

1st Place – Nathaly Gonzalez

2nd Place – Olivia Walker

3rd Place – Mindy Campbell

All three students are in the 7th grade and attend Fossil Ridge Intermediate.

In addition, the students’ posters were sent to the Utah Department of Environmental Quality to participate in a State level contest.  We are proud to announce that our very own Mindy Campbell took 1st place in her grade level.  We are also proud to announce that Burkley Workman received an honorable mention at the state level contest.
We are very proud of our Fossil Ridge Intermediate students that participated and thank them for helping to spread the word on the hazards of Radon.  Please take a moment to appreciate their wonder works of art about Radon.
