The Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce’s Expo Committee is keenly aware of the health concerns that affect today’s children. The Committee thought it would be important to somehow include the students of the Port Jefferson School District in the event, and when they proposed a “How Do You Live a Healthy Life?” contest, the School agreed.
The elementary school students were assigned to design a poster, and the middle and high school health classes were assigned to write an essay to describe how they choose to live a healthy life. One first place winner from each grade will be announced at the Expo. Each will presented with a gift card donated by Bethpage Federal Credit Union and the Chamber.
Second and third place awards will also be given. All winning students will be presented with a Gift Subscription to The Port Times Record, and an award certificate.
All winning poster and essay entries will be on display in the lobby of the high school on the day of the Expo.
