2025 CareLink How I Stay Safe Calendar Contest

2025 CareLink How I Stay Safe Calendar Contest

Computer hackers, bullying and fires – oh my! Student winners address these and other safety themes in University Health’s How I Stay Safe Calendar Contest to share their safety messages and excitement about how they stay safe.

Encourage your students to enter their safety-themed artwork! The contest helps teachers incorporate injury-prevention lessons into their curriculum. Start developing injury prevention awareness with kids ages 4-12 to reinforce the importance of practicing safety at home, on the road and at school.

Twelve winners in Bexar County are announced each year. Prizes are awarded to the top four winners in each age category (4-6 years old; 7-8 years old; 9-12 years old).

The 2025 How I Stay Safe Calendar Contest drawing created by youth, ages 4-12, must give a positive message about preventing injuries. Entries will be accepted online or in-person from January 1 – February 28, 2025.

Submit your entry form online. Acceptable digital artwork formats include GIF, JPG, JPEG and PDF.
