The objective of the Safety Poster Contest is to build awareness for safety in the competitive swimming environment.  Each Local Swim Committee (LSC) gets to pick its winner.  From the LSC winners the Operational Risk Committee will pick 10 posters to be displayed at the USAS Convention. The Grand Prize winner will be selected at Convention based on voting by visitors to the display.  All athlete members are eligible. 

The Operational Risk Committee of USA Swimming invites you to create a poster for our Annual Safety Poster Contest, sponsored by Swimmer’s Edge.  The theme for this year’s contest is Safety at Swim Practice.  This contest promotes safety in our sport and is targeted to our athlete members.  

The goal is simple: create a poster about Safety at Swim Practice (water or dryland) the rest is up to you and your imagination.  Please remember no copyrighted material may be used without permission.  The USA Swimming logo may be used.
