Thank you for Masking Up! Poster Contest  

thanks for masking up

September 21, 2020

St. Peter’s Health thanks everyone in the community who wears a mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19.  
We’re looking to local young artists to help us say THANK YOU and to help raise awareness about the importance of wearing a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic.  
Poster Contest Theme  
Help us thank the community for masking up!
Wearing a mask when in public and around people who aren’t part of your household is one important way to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19. Everyone who takes basic, everyday precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19 should be celebrated and appreciated. Why do you wear a mask? Why do you appreciate others who wear a mask, too? 
Make sure somewhere on your poster you include this: “Thank you for masking up” or “Thank you for wearing a mask.”
Grade Groups  
There are three grade categories:  

  • Pre-kindergarten through 3rd Grade 
  • 4th Grade through 7th Grade  
  • 8th Grade through 12th Grade 

Nurses, doctors, and other St. Peter's Health team members will vote to select a winner in each grade category and also a grand prize winner! 
St. Peter’s Health will print up to 100 copies of each winning poster. The posters will be distributed to local businesses and organizations so they can help thank their customers and employees for masking up. The grand prize winner’s poster will also be displayed on the digital billboard at the corner of North Montana and Cedar in Helena!
The winner from each grade category will also receive a special gift card to a local business!
