Health Department Kicks Off Photo Contest Celebrating Public Health Week, April 4-10

NPHW_LogoJoin the Lincoln County Health Department in celebrating National Public Health Week “Making the U.S. the Healthiest Nation in One Generation — by 2030”. This week serves as a time to reflect on the many accomplishments of public health over the years, while also acknowledging that work is still needed to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be healthy.

Lincoln County Health Department is having a photo contest for Public Health Week and asks residents to submit photos that show “what public health means to me.” Contestants will have a chance to win a red Schwinn Hybrid Super Sport 2 Disc bicycle donated by Schwinn: designed locally in Madison, WI. Photo entries should address one of the public health themes listed below.

  • Making Healthy Choices
  • Being Safe
  • Protecting the Environment
  • Volunteering/Participating in Community Groups

Contestants must complete a photo contest entry form in addition to their photo submission. The entry form asks contestants to identify the public health theme being addressed and how it relates to them personally. Lincoln County Health Department staff will review all entries and determine a winner based on originality, creativity and how well the photo relates to the public health theme.  Click here for contest rules and guidelines and to access the photo contest entry form.

Photos must be submitted electronically with a completed photo contest entry form to kbath@co.lincoln.wi.us by April 30. The winner will be announced the first week in May and will be featured in local newspapers and on the Lincoln County Health Department’s website and Facebook page.

All photo entries will be displayed at the upcoming 100 Year Celebration for the Lincoln County Health Department, scheduled for July 27 from 4 – 6 pm at the Lincoln County Health Department. Stay tuned for more information!
