Spaniard’s Bay youth a winner
Poster submitted by Olivia Noseworthy helps raise immunization awareness
A student at Holy Redeemer School in Spaniard’s Bay has been selected a provincial winner in the 2013 National Immunization Poster Contest for Grade 6 students.
Olivia Noseworthy, age 11, is the daughter of Renee and Clarence Noseworthy. Here’s how this came about. Every other year, Immunize Canada, in collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada, organizes a National Immunization Poster Contest for Grade 6 students in conjunction with the Canadian Immunization Conference.
The goal of the contest is to provide students across Canada with an opportunity to submit works of art reflecting their ideas on immunization for good health.
Approximately 1,500 entries were received from schools across the country, and 14 winning posters — a national winner, a national runner- up, and one winner from each participating province and territory — were selected based on creativity, artistic quality, colourfulness, imagination and the immunization message.
The national winner was Quinlan Sayo, age 11, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and the national runner-up was Morgan Comeau, age 11, from Miramichi, New Brunswick.
Sayo was recognized during the opening session of the 10th Canadian Immunization conference on Dec. 3, 2012 in Vancouver. Her winning poster, along with the other winning posters, was displayed during the conference. In addition to being displayed at the national conference, the posters will be used to promote immunization during Immunization Awareness Week in April 2013.
