Submissions from 2 Kansas Girls Win Honors in National Poster Contest


Two Kansas students have been named as state winners in the "Fight the Bite" national poster contest sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control. Barbara Hersh is a spokesperson for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Hersh says there were 75 entries from Kansas in the contest, which encouraged students to use art to show the ways they can protect themselves and their families from the diseases spread by mosquitoes, ticks and fleas.
