Each February, the Kansas Dental Association holds the KDA Drawing and Class Project Contests as a way to reward third grade students and their teachers for promoting good dental health in the classroom.
The KDA Council on Children's Dental Health scores each class project received with a grading rubric, and the top 3 projects advance to the KDA Annual Meeting, where member dentists vote to determine the placement of the winners.
1st place winners receive a $500 gift card, 2nd place winners receive a $250 gift card, and 3rd place winners receive a $100 gift card.
The winners of the 2017 KDA Class Project Contest are as follows:
"Third Grade Using Disclosing Tablets
Holy Spirit Catholic School
"Dental Health and Healthy Dental Habits
Sublette Elementary School
"Choose Tap Water for a Sparkling Smile
Lincoln Elementary School
Thank you to everyone who participated in our contests! The KDA's member dentists and staff are proud of your hard work and dedication to promoting good dental health.
