Tiana Anthony didn’t even know she had entered a contest when she coloured a fire safety poster as part of her regular school work packages that have been sent home.
Then the OMSK student and her mom Amanda were notified this past March that the second grader won second place in the National Indigenous Fire Safety Council project for Tiana’s fine colouring skills.
She won a Packard Bell AirBook 8 laptop for her efforts.
Over 80 First Nations youth from eight different Indigenous schools entered the fire safety poster campaign, organized by the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada (AFAC).
Tiana’s teacher, Ms. Woods, entered the youngster’s artwork into the contest.
The poster stressed fire safety in the kitchen.
