This was one of the five winning entries created by Lincoln County School District students for the annual poster contest sponsored by the LCSD Nurses Office. Judges reviewed 120 entries, most of them in the kindergarten through second-grade category, before selecting the winners:
* K-2 category: Silas Moss, kindergartener at Sam Case Elementary in Newport.
* 3-5 category: Lauren Beckley, fourth grader at Taft Elementary in Lincoln City.
* 6-8 category: Natasha Hendrix, sixth grader at Crestview Heights in Waldport.
* 9-12 category: Nathan Eisler, tenth grader at Newport High.
* School Spirit Award: Gwendolyn Munro, fifth grader at Oceanlake Elementary.
The winning posters will be reproduced and displayed at schools and offices throughout the school district and the community during this coming school year. In addition, each winner received a $50 gift card to a local retailer and a hand-washing goodie bag.
