The Poison Prevention Week Council today announced the winners of the 2013 National Poison Prevention Week poster contest.
National Poison Prevention Week, held the third week in March each year, is observed nationally to highlight the dangers of poisonings and how to prevent them.

The winning poster in each division will be featured on the 2013 National Poison Prevention Week posters. First, second and third place winners in each division will be posted on http://www.poisonprevention.org.
More than 150 posters were submitted from around the nation. One winner was selected in each of the three divisions: grades kindergarten through two; three through five; and six through eight.
The winners of the 2013 National Poison Prevention Week Poster Contest are as follows:
- Grades kindergarten through two: Colby Johnson from Mercer, Pennsylvania
- Grades three through five: Alayna Ryan from Antwerp, Ohio
