KY students invited to enter environmental health poster contest
Open to ages kindergarten through eighth grade; may submit artwork through Oct. 4; cash prizes
By Susan Dunlap
Frankfort, KY - The Department for Public Health invites all Kentuckians representing kindergarten through eighth grade to participate in the annual Environmental Health Poster Contest. The contest is open to public school, parochial, and home-schooled students and members of sponsoring organizations, such as scout troops and 4-H clubs, in this grade range. Young Kentuckians with an enthusiasm for environmental health and a passion for creative expression can submit their artwork through Oct. 4.
The contest is sponsored by the Kentucky Environmental Public Health Tracking Network and Kentucky Population Health Institute, and it offers cash prizes. Winners' work will be displayed at the annual Children's Environmental Health Summit on Oct. 14 - in observance of National Children's Environmental Health Day - at the Center for Rural Development in Somerset. This free event, which will be offered virtually due to the global pandemic, will provide an overview of issues impacting children's health in Kentucky and will spotlight ongoing efforts to protect our commonwealth's young people.
The theme of this year's poster contest is health equity in Kentucky. Submissions should reflect artists' recognition of health equity as a means of making sure everyone has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible. Some circumstances that determine the health of an individual or a community include access to healthy foods; living in a safe neighborhood; quality housing; quality education; the ability to see a health care professional when needed, and a safe area to play. It is also important to have friends, family and neighbors to help create this community.
First, second and third-place prizes will be awarded: Visa gift cards of $100, $75 and $50, respectively. A winner from each grade level will also be selected and awarded a $25 gift card. All participants will receive a certificate.
