Local fourth grader wins statewide poster contest

Lynnville-Sully fourth-grader Carter Brand, son of Eric and Faye Brand of Sully, was named the first-place winner in the fourth-grade division of the State of Iowa Fire Prevention Poster Contest. Earlier in the school year, Brand’s poster was judged and chosen by the Lynnville Fire Department in the local contest among third to fifth graders featuring the theme, “Don’t Wait, Check the Date!” Brand and his family were invited to the State Fire Prevention Poster Awards Luncheon on Saturday, May 6, in Osage, where they were treated to a tour of the fire station, a fire truck ride, and lunch. Brand received a limited edition trophy, awards plaque, and cash prize for his winning poster. Lynnville Fire Department also received a trophy and cash prize.
