The Nutrition Committee of the Arkansas School Nutrition Association, in collaboration with the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) Child Nutrition Unit, is sponsoring a nutrition poster contest. The contest theme will be the same as the American Dietetic Association’s National Nutrition Month theme for 2011: “Eat Right with Color.”
Awards for the five division winners at the state level will include a $50 cash prize and a trophy. See the entry form for division breakdown by grades. The senior division winner at the state level will receive a $300 scholarship.
The instructor/art teacher of each state level division winner will receive an award of $100 to be used toward the purchase of classroom art supplies.
The child nutrition manager at the school of each state level winner will receive paid Arkansas School Nutrition Association dues for the year 2011.
In order for district winners to be considered for state competition, the attached Poster Contest 2011 Entry Form must be completed and mailed or faxed to the ADE Child Nutrition Unit no later than Friday, March 18. The district entry form is required to ensure that all district level winning posters are received prior to judging.
Posters entered in the state competition should be delivered to the ADE Child Nutrition office by Tuesday, March 29. All posters must be delivered by mail or by delivery service to the ADE Child Nutrition Unit where they will be judged. Posters will not be picked up at the educational cooperatives.
A copy of the poster contest rules and an entry form are attached.
Prizes and awards will be presented during the month of May.
