Woodstock Ill. – McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) announces its 14th annual Anti-Tobacco Media Design Contest for McHenry County high school and college students. This year’s theme is “The Truth about E-Cigarettes”. Submission deadline is January 31st. Since 2004, the contest has highlighted local talent while educating the community on the harmful effects of smoking and secondhand smoke.
Entries are judged on originality, peer appeal, design elements, and creativity. The winning entry will have the student’s name, design, and school displayed on posters, signs, social media, and websites throughout the County. Making the final selection are MCDH’s Community Health staff, as well as representatives from health departments throughout northern Illinois.
For contest information and an entry form students should contact their school’s art teacher, the McHenry County Department of Health at www.mcdh.info or call MCDH 815-334-4852.
