Radon poster contest winners named by Health Department

WYOMING — The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) made a tough decision this year as more than 150 entries rolled in for the radon poster contest. WDH whittled down the entries, which all helped raise awareness about radon and radon testing, to four overall winners and announced them today.

Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas found in the soil that can cause lung cancer if it reaches dangerous levels in homes.
