    FDRHPO ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF STUDENT POSTER CONTEST
    SHOWING SUPPORT OF HEALTH CARE WORKERS IN THE REGION
    DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

    WATERTOWN – Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization (FDRHPO)
    today announced the winners of its regional online poster contest in which
    students showed their support for health care workers during the COVID-19
    pandemic. The contest, “North Country Students … Together While Separate,”
    opened April 16, 2020 for all K-12 students in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence
    counties, and over 100 submissions were received.

    “The posters that the students submitted are true testaments to the compassion
    and dedication of our health care workforce every day, but especially during the
    current pandemic,” explains Erika Flint, FDRHPO Executive Director. “FDRHPO
    has been committed to supporting our health care partners and providers, and
    this contest proved that North Country students, as well, understand and support
    the important role that these professionals play in our community’s health and
    well-being. It truly was a pleasure to watch the posters come in and see the
    amount of thought, detail and creativity that went into every one of them.”

    The contest included two categories. In the “Honoring Health Care Heroes”
    category, 75 K-5 students designed posters about their healthcare hero(es) and
    what makes them so special. The “Now, YOU Be the Teacher” category
    generated 32 posters from students in grades 6-12, who designed posters about
    things they have learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as staying
    healthy (physically, emotionally, and mentally), protecting themselves and their
    families, and the importance of health care workers.

    Posters were judged on a variety of criteria, including: creativity and visual
    appeal; most impactful message; clarity of message; and consistency with
