Lawmakers recognized the winners of the Play It Safe Safety and Nutrition Awareness Poster Contest in the Governor's Office today. A certificate was offered to the Play It Safe International Program on it's 25th Anniversary to commend it for valuable contributions and efforts in promoting safety awareness and prevention to the children of Hawaii.
Twenty-four elementary students later accepted certificates and goody bags from Sen. Chun Oakland, Reps. Tom Brower and John Mizuno, and others as their adoring parents snapped a dozen photos.
The kids created small posters with reminders to Play it Safe, including "play away from cords and sockets" and "Call 9-1-1 in case of danger" and " Never go to the mail by yourself."
The schools that can boast winners are Aiea Elementary, Ala Wai Elementary, Alvah Scott Elementary, August Ahrens, Barber's Point Elementary, Enchanted Lakes Elementary, Hahaione Elementary, Kalihi Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Makalapa Elementary, Mililani Uka, Moanalua Elementary, Mokulee Elementary, Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary, Waiahole Elementary.
