[ARCHIVED] K-6th: Poison Prevention Poster Contest

Mr. Yuk and the Washington Poison Center invite students grades Kindergarten through 6th to participate in our 15th annual Poison Prevention Poster Contest. This year’s theme is “Mr. Yuk Saves the Day!”

One submission in each category will be chosen as the winner, and will be transformed into our state’s campaign materials for National Poison Prevention Week (March 21-27, 2021).
