An estimated 300 posters were received from fourth and fifth grade students throughout the two-county area. The local winners will be announced in coming weeks and their posters submitted to the state contest. The state winner will then advance to the national contest, sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians in Washington, D.C.
