‘Be Tick Free!’ con­test seeks stu­dent en­tries

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

All Dutchess County stu­dents in high school and mid­dle school are in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in the 2017 “Be Tick Free!” me­dia con­test, which will run from Jan. 1 to March 11, 2017.

The goal of the con­test is for stu­dents to learn how to pre­vent Lyme and other tick-borne dis­eases, and then use their dig­i­tal me­dia skills to teach oth­ers what they have learned.

Stu­dents are asked to cre­ate a 30- or 60-sec­ond live ac­tion or com­put­eran­i­mated pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ment about how to pre­vent tick-borne dis­eases.

En­tries may be sub­mit­ted by in­di­vid­u­als or groups.

For more in­for­ma­tion about the “Be Tick Free!” me­dia con­test, go to bit.ly/2dcy8YZ.

Awards and prizes to­talling $500 per divi­sion will be pre­sented to con­test win­ners at the May meet­ing of the Dutchess County Leg­is­la­ture by the Tick Task Force.
