Calendar Contest 2014 Healthy Living Poster and Calendar Contest

The Saint Louis County Department of Health (DOH) is pleased to sponsor a “Healthy Living Poster/Calendar Slogan Contest” for county students in grades K-12. The purpose of the contest is to encourage students to spread healthy messages to their peers on three important issues:

  • The importance of physical activity
  • Making healthy food choices
  • Living a tobacco and drug-free life

  • Last year nearly 1,000 students submitted colorful, creative, and informative posters. A DOH committee had the difficult task of selecting the best 13 which were printed as large posters (36” x 48”) and given back to the winning schools. We also featured the posters on our website and Facebook account and in several local shopping malls. We also created 2014 calendars of all the winners and we are given the calendars to all participating teachers.

    The poster/calendar slogan contest gives us an opportunity to work together to educate youth and promote healthy lifestyle choices. We are requesting your assistance in announcing this contest. Enclosed are copies of the contest announcement and entry forms for your use, including examples of winning posters from previous years.

    Our goal is to keep this contest relevant and worthwhile for all of our participants, so please feel free to contact Barb Ballard with feedback, comments, or questions. Thank you in advance for your participation and cooperation. We look forward to even more participation in Fall 2014!
