HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In observance of National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) in February, the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) is sponsoring its annual poster contest. All Pennsylvania third-grade students are eligible to participate in the contest.

The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 education bond and see his or her poster reproduced as bookmarks to be distributed to all of Pennsylvania's public libraries. In addition to the student prize, the first-place finisher's school and teacher will each receive a $250 prize. The first-place winner will be awarded his or her grand prize at a school function. The second-place finisher will receive a $500 bond, while the third-place finisher will receive a $250 bond.

In December, PDA distributed lesson plan kits to third-grade teachers in Pennsylvania public, private and charter schools. Each kit contains information on dental health topics, classroom activities, four activity sheets, instructions for the PDA-sponsored poster contest and a complimentary NCDHM poster for the classroom.

The poster contest deadline is Wednesday, March 5. PDA will announce the top three finishers at the beginning of April.
