2017 Children's Dental Health Month Poster Contest Winners Announced


As part of its 2017 Children’s Dental Health Month activities, Second District Dental Society (SDDS) held a creative contest in which preschool through high school children from schools in Brooklyn and Staten Island were invited to submit posters that effectively communicated a specific dental hygiene message. This year’s directive to the students was to create a poster featuring original artwork to illustrate a dental hygiene habit that keeps teeth healthy and smiles bright.


SDDS received hundreds of wonderful submissions for the contest which were judged by members of the SDDS Oral Health Committee. The posters were judged based on the artist’s creativity in approaching the project and the educational value of the content. The judges selected 21 remarkable entries to receive first, second and third place prizes in seven age group categories. For their efforts and talent, all winners will receive certificates of recognition and gift cards.


Thank you to everyone who participated! SDDS wishes to recognize all the students who participated for their efforts and hopes that the contest was a valuable learning experience for them.
