Students can enter dental health poster contest
HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) invites third-graders across Pennsylvania to show their creativity this February in celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM).
The theme for 2020 is “Fluoride in Water Prevents Cavities!” This year marks the 75th anniversary of community water fluoridation.
Those who participate in PDA’s poster contest will have a chance at winning several different prizes.
Three statewide winners will be selected from the entries. The first-place winner will be awarded $500. In addition, the first-place winner’s school and teacher will each receive a $250 prize. 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.
PDA offers classroom resources including a lesson plan featuring information on dental health, classroom activities and fun worksheets for the students.
These lesson plan kits are distributed electronically. Contact Michelle Berrones at email@example.com to receive these materials. Complimentary NCDHM posters for the classrooms are also available by request.
All entries for the poster contest must be submitted by March 6.
Teachers are asked to select only one classroom winner and submit the winning entry to: Pennsylvania Dental Association, Attn: NCDHM Poster Contest, 3501 N. Front St., Harrisburg, PA 17110.
PDA will announce the top three winners in April.
