Town of Islip Raises Pool Safety Awareness; Over 200 Children Enter Pool Safety Poster Contest

Islip, NY -- August 26, 2015 – The Town of Islip recently launched a Pool Safety Poster Contest for children between the ages of four and eighteen, to help raise pool safety and drowning prevention awareness. Over 200 children participated in the contest, hoping to have their poster showcased in every Town of Islip Recreation Center, as well as used in the 2016 Pool Safety Brochure. The entries were divided into four age categories. Each category had one winner and most had honorable mention recipients as well. A total of nine children were selected and honored at the August 25th Town Board Meeting. All those honored received a Town of Islip Certificate of Recognition and Islip Town pin, and the four winners received a $25.00 gift card to Target. Town of Islip Board Members met with the kids before the meeting to congratulate them and admire their 200+ posters hanging in the Islip Town Board Room for all to see.

“We’re so happy that we had such an overwhelming response to this contest with over 200 entries,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “We know that over 200 children had a conversation with their families or camp counselors about the importance of pool safety, and that is what is really important.”
