Designing a Year of HealthSchool Awards Assembly

The William Newton Healthcare Foundation and Winfield Arts and Humanities Council recently announced the winners of the third annual Putting the heART Back into Healthcare design contest.

In April, 862 participants from daycare to sixth grade put their creativity to the test by submitting a design that expresses what “a healthy community looks like.” The top twelve designs were selected based on artistic merit, imagination, and perception of a healthy community.

The winning designs are being sold as an academic calendar for just $20. Proceeds from the sale will benefit WNHF Scholarships and WAHC Summer Scholarships.

“The new calendar format gives more children the opportunity to have their visions of a healthy community on display,” says William Newton Healthcare Foundation Director Annika Morris. “A new work of art by a local child is featured each month around your home or workplace.”

Also new this year is the inclusion of tips for recipes, activities, and safety from Healthways of William Newton Hospital. 

“Families can try a new food or learn how to stay active together,” shares Ruth Bumgarner, William Newton Hospital’s Healthways coordinator.  “A favorite in my household is the recipe for homemade granola bars. It’s a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen and makes a delicious after school snack.”    

Creators of the winning designs are Sawyer Kent, Logan Miers and Karaliese Wood of the daycare to pre-k age group, Evanni Chalmers, Emma Calderon and Ava Lewis of the kindergarten to second grade age group, Trevor Allan, Ava Torrance and Shayla Fullmer of the third to fourth grade age group, and Sarah Corle, Sandara Sophalmixay and Levi Maybrier of the fifth to sixth grade age group.

An award ceremony will take place at the annual Winfield Art in the Park event scheduled for noon on Saturday, October 6 at Island Park. Winners will receive an original framed print of their art. The calendars and greeting cards can be purchased on site. The group is offering a special during the month of October. Included with the purchase of two calendars is a free greeting card set.

Calendars are available for sale at the snack bar/gift shop at William Newton Hospital, Winfield Arts and Humanities Council, College Hill Coffee, and Gallery 1001.
