| February 24, 2015

The plan is to address the issues of lead poisoning in the community by teaching the children in two high risk zip-code areas 20901 and 20850 about the issue of Lead Poisoning. The ages of the children will be between 7 and 11 years. After the teaching, the children will replicate what they’ve learned by using their creative abilities to draw posters. By receiving this information the children will be able to share this knowledge with their parents and others within the community. After the drawings have been submitted, the winners will be rewarded educational prizes totaling $650.00. Three winners will be chosen from each site by an unbiased panel of judges. Procedure for Judging The judging will be done by ballot voting. The posters will be displayed in the large conference room at Silver Spring Health Center for two days, allowing the judges to view and vote at times that are convenient for them. Posters will be separated by site and numbered for the judging. Judges will vote based on the number of the poster for a first, second, and third place winner.
