Oklahoma students in grades K-12 are invited to enter a calendar poster contest depicting positive images and illustrating the theme “It only takes a minute to make a difference in the life of a child.”

The Oklahoma State Department of Health’s (OSDH) Office of Child Abuse Prevention, and the Child Abuse Prevention Month Action Committee are sponsoring the contest. The Arts Council of Oklahoma City will select an impartial panel of judges.

Entries must be received by Feb. 27. Contest winners will receive prizes and have their entry on display at the state Capitol on Child Abuse Prevention Day, April 14.

Each participating school will hold its own contest and submit one winning poster from each grade. Students should check with their school office to see if their school is participating in the contest.

There will be 13 state winners selected. All entries submitted will receive a certificate of participation, and additional prizes will be awarded to the 13 winning entries.

Information: Linda Wise or Chris Fiesel, OSDH Office of Child Abuse Prevention, (405) 271-7611 or e-mail LindaKW@health.ok.gov or ChrisF@health.ok.gov.
