Burien 4th grader’s artwork wins Poison Prevention Poster Contest


Lily delivered the official Washington State Poison Prevention Poster to Washington State First Lady Trudy Inslee.

After reviewing a record number of entries from kindergarten through 6th grade students across Washington state, Mr. Yuk and the Washington Poison Center announced the winner of the 2019 Poison Prevention Poster Contest sponsored by Swedish is Lily Fernley, a 4th grade student at Shorewood Elementary in Burien.

Lily’s artwork was chosen from over 400 entries.

“Lily’s artwork colorfully reflects how Mr. Yuk comes to the rescue for people needing assistance with poisonings, drug overdoses, or toxic exposures,” said Dr. Erica Liebelt, executive/medical director for the Washington Poison Center. “We liked how Lily creatively wove together the image of Mr. Yuk with what she learned from the poison prevention curriculum, especially to LOOK: lock it up, out of reach, out of sight, keep safe.”

Schools that submitted artwork to the poison prevention poster contest included:

Mr. Yuk and Lily delivered the official Washington State Poison Prevention Poster to legislators in Olympia on March 19, along with sending copies to 1,500 public and private elementary schools throughout Washington state.
