The Logan County Department of Public Health, Lincoln Park District
and the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Community Health
Collaborative are excited to invite all Logan County fifth graders
to participate in this year’s Wellness Expo contest.
For several years, the fifth grade wellness expo has been held at
the Lincoln Park District teaching local students about healthy
choices. This year the event will be held during the school day on
Friday, February 15, 2019. Over 250 fifth graders from across the
county are expected to attend the event.
This year all fifth graders are invited to participate in a photo
contest. First, second, and third prize winners will be selected
from the entries with a great selection of prizes including a
Lincoln Park District family pool pass, an indoor pool party at
Lincoln College and a bowling party at Logan Lanes.
The ALMH Community Health Collaborative is working with schools in
Logan County, reaching over 3,200 students with the Community
Approach to Child Health (CATCH) program. CATCH schools create
healthy school environments for their students. And any student at a
CATCH school can tell you that everyone should “eat more GO foods
than SLOW foods and more SLOW foods than WHOA foods.” They also know
that an active lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle.
Contest rules require only one person per selfie/photo. The
contestant’s name, school, phone number and photo should be e-mailed
to almhwebmaster@ mhsil.com
by February 8.

Winners will be featured in promotional health materials and all

theatre and is planned to air this spring.
The winners will be announced at the February 15 fifth grade expo
and displayed at the free community wellness expo between 9am-1pm on
Saturday, February 16, also held at the Lincoln Park District.
