10th Annual Children's Dental Health Month Contest

"Helping Students Celebrate Dental Hygiene!

Recently close to 250 people gathered for an Awards Ceremony to celebrate the 9th Annual National Children’s Dental Health Month Essay & Coloring Contest, sponsored by Sunshine Dental, PC, 140 Eastern Boulevard, Watertown. The annual contest continues to grow each and every year, with this year’s contest involving the largest number of students thus far. Over 16 schools, 92 classes and a total of 1,418 students took part in the contest. Dr. Aeklavya Panjali of Sunshine Dental, PC was overwhelmed with the participation for this year’s contest saying, “It’s all about the kids, and this is a lot of kids!” “Getting kids excited about good oral hygiene is what this contest is all about and I am just thrilled to see that we are reaching this many of them.”

 

The contest is broken into a coloring contest (grades K – 3) and an essay contest (grades 4 & 5). The theme for this year’s contest was "A Healthy Smile? It's Easy To Find! Remember to Brush & Floss Every Day!

 

Fifty seven students received Top Honor Awards from within their individual schools, each receiving a Certificate and a $10.00 Borders Gift Card. Of the 57 students, three were chosen from the coloring entries and three from the essay entries to receive the Overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place Awards. These students each received $100.00, $75.00 and $50.00 U.S. Savings Bonds respectively, in addition to the Borders Gift Cards.

 

Receiving Overall Awards 2014 for the essay contest were;

 

1st Place from Starbuck Elementary, Daniel Kiblin

2nd Place from Bellville-Henderson Elementary, Peyton Bailey

3rd Place from Immaculate Heart Intermediate School, Jordan Signor.

                                                                                                     Overall Winners            

    

As an added bonus to receiving these awards Dr. Panjali treats the winning students, their teachers, school principals, school nurses, and their families to a pizza party/awards reception, held at the Ramada Inn, Watertown, to celebrate their accomplishments. Dr. Panjali again emphasized that it’s all about the kids. “We started ten years ago with about 10 kids in the waiting room of my office with cookies and punch. Today we have over 50 kids with their families and school representatives enjoying pizza, and really celebrating in a big way, how kids are learning that taking care of their smile is important, but seeing them smile is just as important.”

 

Each Fall Sunshine Dental also sponsors a “Good Deeds” Contest, celebrating the good that kids so seldom get recognized for. This contest is open to all students in grades K – 12.
