A Genesis Christian Academy student has been named a State Fire Marshal Fire Prevention Poster winner.

Mady Trower, daughter of Travis and Becky Trower, Basehor, won the grades 4-6 category. She’s a fifth-grader at GCA.

The competition coincided with Fire Prevention Week Oct. 6-12. The fire marshal’s office sponsored the inaugural contest, which was designed to support fire safety education efforts of local fire departments.

For the K-3 category, Steven Baker, second-grader at Broken Arrow Elementary School in Shawnee, and Holly Forge, second-grader from Pleasant Ridge Elementary in Easton, tied for the top spot.

All poster submissions will be displayed in the State Capitol rotunda Jan. 21-24. The three winners will meet Jorgensen and Gov. Sam Brownback at a later date when they will receive certificates.
