Handwashing 2011 Healthy Living Calendar Contest

In 2010, 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:


alcohol, tobacco, and drug free living


the importance of physical activity


the importance of healthy food choices every day

Over 2,000 students throughout Saint Louis County submitted entries in the contest. This calendar highlights the top 13 winning entries.

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.

The Saint Louis County Department of Health offers:


Consultations and resources on health education for schools and community groups. Call (314) 615-0555 for more information.


Educational materials for health promotions, public events and festivals.


Information about all forms of tobacco use, healthy food choices and physical activity.
