Check Out The Winning Posters For Tick Bite Prevention

(UNDATED) – The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) held a poster contest for K-12 students in Indiana in honor of Lyme Disease Awareness Month. The goal of the contest was to increase awareness of tickborne disease prevention and promote the safe enjoyment of the outdoors.

Prize packages for each winner were donated by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources ($50-$55 value).

The best way to prevent tickborne disease is to prevent tick bites. Children and their parents can obtain additional information regarding prevention methods from the Indiana State Department of Health website and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
