The winners of the annual Fire Safety Poster Contest competition, sponsored by the Newark Fire Department and the Newark Public Schools, were treated to a luncheon Wednesday at school district offices on Cedar Street.
The theme of this year’s contest was “Have Two Ways Out,” a reference to the importance of having more than one escape route in the event of a fire.
First-place winners were selected from most grade levels. They are:
