The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the National Garden Clubs, Inc. gave children first through fifth grade the opportunity to participate in the 2019 Smokey the Bear Poster Contest. The Youth Committee of the Moon Township Garden Club invited the local Boy and Girl Scouts to draw posters demonstrating their understanding of wildfire prevention. All posters had to feature Smokey the Bear and include Smokey’s wildfire prevention message, “Only You Can Prevent Wildfires!”
The Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania awarded a 1st Place Prize to James Joyce, Second Grade scout from Boy Scout Pack 198. His winning poster was sent in for the national judging.
