Pennsylvania Dental Association Announces Winners Of Annual Statewide Third-grade Student Poster Contest

HARRISBURG, Pa., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A $500 prize will be awarded to Mason Gray, a third-grade student at Linglestown Elementary in Dauphin County, for winning first place in the Pennsylvania Dental Association's (PDA) 2013 National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) statewide poster contest.

With a shiny white tooth proudly positioned between a red-caped tooth brush and toothpaste, his superhero themed "Fighting Every Day to Defeat Tooth Decay" poster delivers a powerful message encouraging good oral health. Mason will be presented with his framed winning poster by a PDA member dentist, at an upcoming school awards assembly. Linglestown Elementary and Mason's teacher, Mrs. Sherri Fetterhuff will also receive $250 each for participating in PDA's contest.

Second-place winner, Ellie Matson, a third-grade student of Kathryn D. Markley Elementary in Chester County, colorfully depicted her poster with the "5 Steps to a Winning Smile." Ellie numbered and illustrated the five steps—brush, floss, rinse, checkups and healthy foods—below a gold medal necklace displaying "#1" and a bright, white tooth on the medallion. Ellie will receive a $250 prize.

"Shoot for 2: Brush for 2 Minutes 2 Times a Day" was the theme of third-place winner, Savannah Lorenc's poster. She drew a soccer player kicking a ball into a detailed soccer goal, uniquely equipped with tooth netting, toothbrush posts and a toothpaste crossbar. Savannah, a third-grader at Sheridan Terrace Elementary in Westmoreland County, will receive a $100 prize.

The following students were among the Top 10 finalists and will receive an Honorable Mention:

  • Khryztelle Alferez, Age 9, Notre Dame Elementary, East Stroudsburg
  • James Bartolucci, Age 8, Holy Family School, Nazareth
  • Carley Fisher, Age 8, Resica Elementary, East Stroudsburg
  • Christian Maccarrone, Age 9, JM Hill Elementary, East Stroudsburg
  • Maison Smith, Age 9, Mountain View Elementary, Harrisburg
  • Lucas Robbins, age 8, Elk Lake Elementary, Dimock  
  • Olivia Williams, Age 8, Canton Elementary, Canton

The winning posters were selected from more than 200 well designed and creative entries submitted to the PDA Central Office for judging. The contest was open to third-grade students in any Pennsylvania public, private or charter school. It is estimated that 20,000 third-grade students across Pennsylvania participated in this year's poster contest.
