All images should be a poster composition and express themes related to healthy and happy communities. Diversity is encouraged in the imagery. Students should include a title for their work.
Although younger students will most likely receive help in planning from parents or teachers, we encourage each student to do his/her own work. Entries with student handwriting and coloring will score better than those designed, drawn, andcolored by adult assistance.
