Pa. dental association sponsors kids' poster contest

In celebration of National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) in February, the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) is sponsoring its annual poster contest for third-grade students in Pennsylvania.

Students are asked to draw posters that reflect what they learned during NCDHM and submit them for their chance at winning. From the submissions, three winners will be selected. The first-place winner will receive $500, and the winner's school and teacher will each receive $250. The grand prize will be awarded to the first-place winner at a school function. The second-place winner will receive $250, while the third-place winner will receive $100.

The NCDHM lesson plan kits are being distributed electronically through the downloading of material on the PDA website. The kits are designed for third-grade teachers in Pennsylvania public, private, and charter schools, and contain a lesson plan featuring information on dental health topics, classroom activities, and instructions for the PDA-sponsored poster contest. A complimentary NCDHM poster for each participating classroom can be requested through PDA's website.

All entries for the poster contest must be submitted by March 15. The PDA will announce the top three winners in April.
