2020 Winners

Raleigh, NC. – Governor Roy Cooper proclaimed April 2020 as Tick and Mosquito Awareness Month. As part of Tick and Mosquito Awareness month, the North Carolina Division of Public Health, Communicable Disease Branch held the “Fight the Bite” Contest for students grades K-12. To promote the importance of vector borne disease prevention, the contest encouraged students to use artwork to promote the Fight the Bite theme, inspiring all North Carolinians to prevent vector borne disease. “We received more than 100 artwork entries, and are highly impressed by the artistic abilities of student in North Carolina. We were equally impressed that all of our entries reflected how much students in North Carolina know about protecting themselves, their families and communities. We appreciate the participation of North Carolina schools, students, and educators in the Fight the Bite contest” said Dr. Alexis M Barbarin, North Carolina Public Health Entomologist. Students were divided into three grade categories: K-4, 5-8, and 9-12th grades. Entries were voted on by entomologists and other members of the public health community. Students were graded on originality, creativity, and their public health message of vector borne disease prevention. There were 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place awards for students in most of the grading categories. Artwork will be displayed in schools, local health departments, and other government buildings to encourage vector-borne disease prevention. We also encourage readers to print and post winning entries to promote a vector-borne disease free North Carolina!
