In order to spread the message about radon’s health hazards, the American Lung Association and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 7, and the Missouri Radon Coalition host the annual statewide Missouri Radon Poster Contest. We are once again calling on Missouri citizens ages 9-14 to create a radon poster that will increase public awareness of radon gas and encourage others to test their homes. The contest officially starts on August 1st, 2023 and runs until October 13th, 2023. Please see below for official rules and details.
