Schools from all 50 states, U.S. territories, tribal nations and the Department of Defense participated in the 2011 National Radon Awareness poster contest. Each year, the Nevada Radon Education Program Team encourages students, ages 9-14, to create a radon awareness poster.
This year, 54 posters were entered from three counties in Nevada. Judges selected winners and runners-up in each category. Nevada’s top three Radon Poster Contest winners were: first place, Alexandra Resney, a homeschooled student from Gardnerville; second place, Melissa Liang; and third place, Cade Walley, both from Hyde Park Middle School in Las Vegas. The top three Nevada posters were sent to the national contest, sponsored by Kansas State University and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Please click here for all the details.
