VAN WERT, Ohio (WANE) – A fifth grader from Van Wert County, Ohio won one of 12 statewide awards from the Ohio State Fire Marshal’s Office.
Becca Kesler got the news at a surprise convocation at Lincolnview Elementary on Monday.
Kesler made a poster about making a fire escape plan to win the award. She said there are really two reasons to make an escape plan.
“It’s really good to get out because if you don’t, then you can really get hurt. And it’s easier for the firefighters too,” Kesler said.
Kesler’s poster will be on display at this year’s Ohio State Fair and in the state fire marshal’s office.
