The Department for Public Health is inviting school-age children across the Commonwealth to create and submit original artwork for a chance to win cash prizes in a tickborne disease prevention poster contest sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Independent Health Department. Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade may submit a poster encouraging tick bit prevention during outdoor activities. Posters must include at least one of the following prevention methods: be aware of ticks when in or near wooded and brushy areas; check yourself for ticks; remove ticks as soon as possible; use an EPA-approved repellent.
