Deadline: March 1, 2023

NSAA's safety awareness poster contest promotes skiing safety awareness and education to elementary school children, supports classroom curriculum related to sports, health and safety, and gives kids a chance to have fun and be creative while learning about slope safety. The contest targets fourth, fifth and sixth graders, but any elementary-age child can participate. Students are asked to create a poster related to any one of the 10 points in the new "Your Responsibility Code." Two winners are picked annually, one for "Most Creative Design" and one for "Best Overall Safety Message". Prizes are awarded.

NSAA ski area members promote and administer the safety poster contest for kids in their respective local community and schools. Ski areas will judge and select their local winners. Local winning posters are then entered by the ski area in the national contest, giving local kids a chance to be recognized nationally for their winning design.
