Contest Rules
 
    Opioids – natural or synthetic, illicit or otherwise – all carry similarly high risks of dependency, addiction and overdose and are known to be addictive. Opioids also include common prescription pain relievers. If misused or abused, these drugs can cause severe harm.
    The Louisiana Dental Association would like to do its part in educating our members and the public on the dangers of opioid abuse, as well as to inform children of the dangers of opioids by having them participate. For the contest, we are asking children to create an image representing dentists educating others on the risks and harm of opioid abuse.
  • Poster must reflect the theme of “Dentists in Louisiana Want to Give Opioids the Boot” and must provide a positive message and focus on solutions to our state’s opioid abuse problems.
  • Use 8 1/2 x 11, white, vertical sheet of paper.
  • Open to Louisiana children, ages 8 to 18.
  • Entries may be done via varous media, including freehand with pencil, ink, crayons, markers, and the like, or submitted digitally if designed on a computer. No copyrighted images.  Must be original work.
  • Must be the student’s original slogan and artwork, and should be age appropriate within the grade division.
  • Signature signifies it is student’s original artwork.
  • No glue or glitter.
  • Each entry must be submitted with a fully completed and legible entry form.
  • All entries become the property of the Louisiana Dental Association and may not be returned to the artist.
 
Judging

Judging will be done by the Louisiana Dental Association Opioid Awareness Ad Hoc Committee with the assistance of the LDA staff. A 100 point scoring system will be used to determine the winners. All entries will be anonymous to judges. Items of consideration in which entries are judged will be in regards to quality and creativity of design, positive approach to the theme, and reproductablity of the piece.
  • 30 Points: Slogan - How clearly is the theme presented?
  • 30 Points: Visuals - How well do the visuals convey the message?
  • 40 Points: Overall impact - How effective was the poster in capturing your attention and causing you to reflect on the topic?
