Love Louisiana Video Challenge Contest

The Love Louisiana Video Challenge celebrates all things wonderful about Louisiana and our children’s education. LAPTA wants video submissions from students expressing what makes Louisiana special. This should be really fun to see what the students create! Winning videos will be shown at the LAPTA Centennial Celebration on March 25, 2023, in Baton Rouge. Download support documents & sample flyer at PDF or Word.

Safety Poster Contest

As Louisiana PTA observes its Centennial Celebration, the Fire Prevention Week Program and Sparky the Fire Dog are also 100 years old! Fire Prevention Week is October 9-16, 2022. See for fire safety messages, activities, materials, games, lesson plans, safety tip sheet, and more.


Both the Fire Prevention Week Program and Louisiana PTA are celebrating their Centennial Years! Want to help your child learn more about fire safety? Kids learn best in a hands-on, interactive way. At, kids can find games, activities, and more to help them learn essential fire safety while playing games they will love.

Congratulations to our Safety Poster winners and a big thank you to Louisiana State Fire Marshal Chief Dan Wallis for serving as our Special Guest Judge! All our winners did a great job in interpreting the theme of "Fire Safety". The entries were so good that there was a tie in the Intermediate category and we added an additional award!
