Calling all Kindergarten through 4th grade teachers, parents and students: we need your help! National Poison Prevention Week is March 17-23, 2019 and each year the Missouri Poison Center hosts a poster contest for students to draw, paint, and color their messages about poison safety.

One Grand Prize Winner will receive a one-year family membership to The Magic House St. Louis Children’s Museum, a pizza party for his/her class, and a surprise goodie bag.
