One of the most successful activities of the committee is its poster contest for severe weather awareness. This contest is open to any Michigan student enrolled in fourth or fifth grade. We received over 200 entries for the 2014 contest. The artwork portrayed on the left is this year's contest winners.

The committee is grateful for the continued support it receives from its member organizations, especially for the generous contributions of State Farm Insurance in supporting the development of this Severe Weather Awareness Week poster campaign. Their partnership and participation on the committee contribute significantly to accomplishing the committee's goal of increasing the public's awareness of severe weather.

Because of the committee's efforts in developing the severe weather poster contest and several hazard awareness campaigns to inform Michigan residents of the importance of being prepared for severe weather, the Michigan Committee for Severe Weather Awareness received the National Weather Association's Public Education Award for the year 2000.
