Elementary Student Wins Poison Prevention Poster Contest
A group of artistic students are helping spread an important message. The Missouri Poison Center celebrated the winners of an art contest last week, to mark National Poison Prevention Week. Local students from different grades created posters to describe the lessons they learned about poison dangers in class. Kids in St Louis County and St Louis City competed.
There was one grand prize winner (who also happened to be in 2nd grade), and then one winner city and county wide for each grade (K through 4th grade). Maplewood Richmond Heights Elementary student, Abby Bradley won the 2nd grade award.
The Missouri Poison Center, will be bringing a Ted Drewe's ice cream party for Abby's class. Abby received a goody bag, tshirt, and an ice cream party for her class for winning the contest.
The award ceremony was at Cardinal Glennon Hospital and the winning posters were on display for poison control awareness week.
“I think it is really cool that our kids participated and one of them even won. It taught awareness and was a fun way to learn about a very serious subject” said Angel Goldberg, school nurse.
