The Pennsylvania Dental Association is inviting third-graders across Pennsylvania to show their creativity this February in celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM).

The theme for 2021 is: “Water, Nature’s Drink!” The American Dental Association (ADA) emphasizes that the attitudes and habits established at an early age are critical in maintaining good oral health throughout life. By participating in the annual celebration of NCDHM, members of the dental team, parents, teachers and others can help keep children’s smiles beautiful now and for years to come.

Those who participate in PDA’s poster contest will have a chance at winning several different prizes. Three statewide winners will be selected from the entries. The first-place winner will be awarded $500. In addition, the first-place winner’s school and teacher will each receive a $250 prize. The second-place winner will receive $250, while the third-place winner will receive $100.
