GKAS winning designs
Winning art: Children in Mansfield, Ohio, get into the Give Kids A Smile spirit by designing posters promoting oral health. Winning posters were displayed at the local mall in February. Third Street Family Health Services, a federally qualified health center, sponsored the contest. GKAS health fairs held Feb. 1 and Feb. 15 at Crestview Elementary School included screenings, prophylaxes and sealants by Third Street Family Health Services dentists and staff and health education and fun activities for children. “I already have two schools lined up for 2014 and 2015,” dental hygienist Laura Longwell wrote to the ADA. “It is a lot of work, but we always look forward to it. We all have a passion to reach children who need our help. Thank you for letting us do what we love!” Pictured are poster contest entrants Hayden Kuhn and Morgan Welch with their winning designs.
