Gill Hall Elementary School third grade student Caleb Nemchek has been named the 1st place prize winner in the National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) poster contest for the state of Pennsylvania.


Poster Winner Caleb Nemchek

Caleb received a $500 check with his poster custom-framed and presented to him at Gill Hall Elementary during a special assembly held on Friday, May 12, 2017. In addition, Gill Hall Elementary and Caleb's teacher, Katie Palmer, also received prizes of $250 each for taking first place honors in PDA’s contest.

Caleb’s winning poster reminded everyone that you can fight cavities with a simple oral health routine including brushing twice a day and flossing daily. The theme for his poster (“Game Over for Cavities!”) was inspired by a Pac-Man game, showing “Pac-Cav” being chased by the ghosts of flossing, brushing and dental visits.

The winning posters were selected from nearly 125 clever, well-designed entries submitted to the PDA central office for judging. The contest was open to third grade students in any Pennsylvania public, private or charter school. More than 1,500 schools were contacted for participation.

The NCDHM poster contest is an event to conclude a month-long celebration known today as National Children’s Dental Health Month in February. Congratulations, Caleb!
