{p dir=”ltr”}CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Health invites Wyoming students in third through ninth grades to enter a poster contest designed to raise awareness about radon and radon testing.

Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas found in the soil that can sometimes reach dangerous levels in homes.

This contest deadline is May 10.

Entries will be divided into groups for third through sixth grades and seventh through ninth grades. The top two winners in each group will receive prizes. First-place winners will receive a Fitbit and a Wyoming State Parks pass. Second-place winners will receive a state parks pass. All participants will receive a free radon test coupon.

Students must choose from the following five topics for their posters:

What is radon?

Where does radon come from?

How does radon get into our homes?

Radon can cause lung cancer.

Test your home for radon.
