Fireworks Educational Program Contest
The Warrington Township Fireworks Ad Hoc Committee has established a Fireworks Educational Program to help our community better understand the dangers of the use and abuse of consumer fireworks and to educate about our recently passed fireworks law.
As part of this program, the Committee will be holding a contest for the creation of educational flyers by Warrington Township residents (and students who attend schools in Warrington). Submissions should be informative and creative with the understanding that they may be posted to the Township website and social media pages. Prizes will be awarded as follows:
|6th Grade and Under||7th to 12th Grade||Adults|
|1st Place = $100||1st Place = $100||1st Place = $100|
