Dare Elementary 3rd grader wins Mosquito Beater poster contest


June 1, 2012
     Dare Elementary 3rd grade student Gianina Cragg won the York County Mosquito Beater 2012 poster contest.
     The yearly contest is the culmination of county staff's outreach efforts to teach elementary students about mosquitoes and how to prevent them from breeding and biting. After learning things like where mosquitoes breed, why female mosquitoes need blood, and how to camouflage themselves using loose clothing and bug spray to avoid mosquito bites, students are encouraged to participate in a poster contest, using their creativity to portray the lessons they learned. 
     A $25 gift card from Barnes & Noble was awarded to one poster winner from each school. Gianina was chosen as the overall winner from all schools and was presented with an additional $25 gift card. Gianina's poster was selected out of 200 posters completed and submitted by county third-graders this year.
