Students Invited to Participate in Crozer-Keystone’s Stroke Education
and Awareness Contest
Springfield, Pa.—In an effort to educate students, their families, and the community about the signs of and treatment for stroke, physicians and clinicians of the Crozer-Keystone Health System will once again host a contest with cash prizes for elementary, middle and high school students.
Students should create an 8 ½” x 11” informational sheet about stroke awareness/prevention and a logo or slogan. The winning designs will be featured on the panes of an umbrella that will be mass-produced, along with the stroke informational sheets, and distributed throughout the community in honor of Stroke Awareness Month (May).
The top two entries from the elementary, middle and high school levels will each receive $200 for first place and $100 for second place. The classroom of each category’s first-place winner will receive $150.
The contest is meant to be a creative, fun and educational project. Teachers and family members are welcome to help the students design their projects. Useful information on stroke can be found on the National Stroke Association’s website, www.stroke.org.
Submit entries by March 31, 2014 to Gregory Cuculino, M.D. chairman of Emergency Medicine at Taylor Hospital and Delaware County Memorial Hospital, at firstname.lastname@example.org or:
