The theme is "Healthy Eating...Healthy Me". Any medium can be used on an 8-1/2" x 11" paper. The theme words must be included as part of your poster. Prizes include Publix gift certificates, personalized herb gardens, and T-shirts printed with your design.

Mail your entries, along with a $5.00 entry fee* (payable to "Growing Healthy Kids") to:
