When grandma says turn off the TV and do something constructive, she knows what she's talking about. While on a family ski vacation at Sunday River, Maine, Emily Rose, 5, heeded her grandmother's advice and drew a poster with crayons borrowed from the hotel's front desk. Emily and Gregory Flynn, 11, are co-winners of the inaugural National Kids' Safety Poster Contest, organized by the National Ski Areas Association. Gregory, who lives in Edwards, Colo., sketched his "Stay In Control and You'll Be Cool" entry as part of a fifth-grade art project at Vail Mountain School. The contest, sponsored by Boeri helmets, asked children to create a poster inspired by the Skier's Responsibility Code and received 148 entries from 26 ski areas in 15 states. Emily's winning message of "See Spring, Ski Safely" resonated with the judges, but she found her inspiration elsewhere. "I like to draw daisies," she explains.
