The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is holding a contest to promote the importance of having a weather alert radio.  You can enter the contest to win one of 100 weather radios by reading some information online and taking a five question quiz.

IEMA spokesman Patti Thompson says the idea is to teach people about what a vital tool these radios are during severe weather.
