Handwashing 2010 Healthy Living Calendar Contest

In 2009, the Saint Louis County Department of Health sponsored a Healthy Living Poster/Slogan Contest for County students in grades K-12. The purpose of the contest was to encourage students to spread messages to their peers that promote a healthy lifestyle. Posters could highlight any of the three following healthy choices:


The importance of physical activity;


The importance of healthy food choices every day;


Alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free living.

Over 3,000 students throughout Saint Louis County submitted entries in the contest. A panel of judges from the Department of Health selected 13 winning entries to make up the cover and the 12 months of the 2010 calendar.

Thank you to the teachers, school faculty, and D.A.R.E. officers who assisted in promoting the contest to students. The contest provides an opportunity for the Saint Louis County Department of Health to collaborate with schools throughout the county to promote Healthy Living. We would like to give a special thanks to all of the contest participants for their creative artwork and healthy living messages.

Below are the winning entries:
