Information on Sponsoring the Calendar Project

Annual Fire Safety Calendar and Poster Contest.
The program is a yearly program that features the art work of 3rd grade students from around the State. The program is an annual event that produces a calendar featuring the art work of 3rd grade students from around the State. The program provides a focused learning experience when children prepare fire prevention posters for each month of the calendar.

Calendars are printed with donations from a group of dedicated sponsors who believe fire safety education reduces fire related injuries and deaths and believes education starts with educating one of our most vulnerable age groups.

If you would like to help sponsor the project and have your name, company or organization represented on the calendar you can find more information on that by reading the appropriate link below.

In the 27 years of the program over 495,000 fire safety calendars have been given to elementary school children delivering daily fire safety messages and bestowing reminders to thousands of families across the State. The calendar project is primarily funded by donations from sponsors and Vermont’s emergency service groups.
