In a bid to increase TB awareness and help stop the spread of the disease, the Santa Clara County Tuberculosis Prevention Partnership in California is promoting a contest that encourages local artists in area schools to design posters around the theme “Stop Tuberculosis in My Lifetime” in a way that is “positive, encouraging, and original.” A $300 grand prize will be offered to students in grades 1–8 and to students in high school and community college. An additional $300 award will go to the winning students’ school art departments. Second place prizes of $200 also will be awarded to each of these groups of students, with $200 going to those students’ school art departments as well. Breathe California, RESULTS Educational Foundation, and Qiagen Pharmaceuticals are sponsoring the contest, which has an April 30 deadline. Winning entries will be on display in various locations around Silicon Valley. For an entry form and rules, please visit www.lungsrus.org/BreatheCA/.
