Three fourth-grade students won the top prizes in the annual Washington County Home Chemical Safety poster contest.
The first-, second- and third-place winners and several semi-finalists received medals and other prizes from the Local Emergency Planning Committee at Tuesday's County Commissioners meeting.
The contest required students to submit posters illustrating chemical safety tips.
The Home Chemical Safety Program is taught to fourth-grade students throughout Washington County.
About 2,000 students have been educated in home chemical safety in the four years the program has been offered, according to a statement.
Jessica Ambrose, from Clear Spring Elementary School, won first place. She received a gold medal, a $100 gift certificate from Circuit City and a $100 savings bond.
