The winner's class will also get a trip to the fire brigade's Flashpoint Lifeskills Centre in Bodmin.
Flashpoint is an interactive learning centre designed to teach children about safety through experiencing risk.
Chief fire officer Des Tidbury said: "Fireworks are to be enjoyed but we need to make sure that everyone realises that they can be dangerous. The majority of firework injuries happen at family or private parties, so getting children on board to think about firework and bonfire safety is very important."
Entries for the competition need to be submitted, through schools, to Flashpoint by 13 October:
Flashpoint Lifeskills Centre, 21-23 Normandy Way, Bodmin. PL31 1HA
