Three Falcon Students Earn Honorable Mentions in Statewide Rabies Prevention Poster Contest
Three Bishop Dunne 7th graders were notified that out of thousands of entries in a Texas Department of State Health poster contest, they were the runners-up.
Savannah Everett, Alina Hampton and Jade Nash were each recognized for their artwork in the state wide campaign to keep Texans safe from rabies.
In an e-mail to Alma Keglovits, moderator of the Bishop Dunne Animal Rescue Club, Texas Department of State Health Services Epidemiologist Bonny Mayes complimented her students on their impressive artwork, saying that she wished more prizes were available to give them.
Savannah’s poster was a colored pencil drawing of a pug with a rabies’ vaccine dog tag around its neck. She says she’s been drawing since she was little and enjoys the Animal Rescue Club on campus. She hopes to be a lawyer one day.
Jade’s poster had bats and a fox in a forest and was created with markers, crayons and glitter. Her poster warned of the dangers of being bitten by those animals. She’s been drawing since kindergarten and, like Savannah, enjoys her involvement with the Animal Rescue Club. She plans to be a research doctor one day.
Alina Hampton’s talent for art became apparent when she was just eight years old. A native of California, she moved to Dallas with her family last July. She is also a member of the Animal Rescue Club and takes care of her pet, a dog named Bambino. When she’s not in school she plays golf and looks forward to being good enough to join the Falcon varsity Golf team one day.
The annual Rabies Prevention poster contest is open to all middle and high school students in the state. Winning posters will be publicized on the DSHS website. All posters become the property of the Texas Department of State Health Services. Artwork from top-ranking posters may be used for future state sponsored educational materials.
The contest is sponsored by the Zach Jones Memorial Fund with the purpose of raising rabies awareness. For more information, see: http://www.zachjonesmemorial.org/
