The springtime severe weather season is quickly approaching and that means it’s time for the annual 2021 Nebraska Severe Weather Awareness Poster Contest. The contest is sponsored by the Nebraska Association of Emergency Management, the National Weather Service, the Nebraska National Guard, and the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency, and is part of the annual Severe Weather Awareness Week promoted by the Emergency Management Directors and Coordinators across Nebraska.

This year the poster contest is open to all third grade students in Nebraska’s public and private schools as well as home-schooled third grade students. Teachers are encouraged to have students participate while teaching them about hazards of severe weather in Nebraska. Tornadoes, lightning, and flooding are common themes for the posters because they represent the kind of severe weather most experienced in Nebraska.
