Holmen student awarded first place in statewide competition

A student from Holmen is recognized today for her efforts in drawing attention to fire safety.

Grace Steinke of Holmen was awarded first place in a poster competition hosted by the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin.

Her poster will appear in a statewide fire and safety newspaper distributed to students at more than two-thousand schools in the state.

Organizers say Grace’s design was chosen because of the message and how effective it was at getting the point across.

“I was trying to show people how to be safe in a fire if it were to happen so then they would know what to do,” said Grace Steinke, who made the award winning design.

The newspaper is distributed to students from fourth to seventh grade students.
