Grade 5 NEWS: Poster Contest


GRADE FIVE NEWSLast winter students in grade 5 learned about radiant energy and sun safety. As a culminating activity, they entered the national SunWise with Shade Poster Contest in which they created posters using five SunWise tips to help spread awareness, about skin cancer and protection from the sun. Judging included originality, creativity, and quality of artwork. The competition began at the state level. I am so very proud to announce that three grade 5 students swept the top three places in Massachusetts.

Congratulations to Aoife Kilbride – grade 5B who won first place and received a digital camera for her poster, “Spare Yourself from the Sun, Strike out Skin Canter!” She now advances to the national contest and is now waiting your vote. You could help her become the national winner. Go to to vote. Congratulations also go to the runners up: Shauna Lynch for “Slot Machine” and Kayley Jefferson for “Sorry”!

See their posters at the Shade Foundation Website:
