Health Department Announces Winners of Environmental Poster Contest
Winning Posters Depict “Travel Green, Travel Clean” Theme
Three students in grades 6-8 are winners in the 15th annual environmental poster contest sponsored by the Allegheny County Health Department.
The theme of this year’s contest was “Travel Green, Travel Clean.” Students were invited to create posters depicting how they can help reduce air pollution by making “green” travel decisions and how they can encourage others to join them in cutting down on pollution.
For the second year in a row Shadyside Academy Middle School student Lucia Santos-Huertas won first place, for a poster declaring “Support Green Infrastructure” and depicting ways to reduce pollution. (pictured)

Second place was awarded to Ngoc Ngo of Saint Maria Goretti School in Bloomfield, for a poster of a tree branching in two directions, one side of it green and lush with “green” travel ideas and the other side of it barren with smog-producing cars and factories.
Third place was awarded to Alyssa Sanchez of St. Maria Goretti School, whose poster showed ways to reduce pollution by traveling “green,” including walking, carpooling, riding bikes and using hybrid vehicles.
The winning posters are available for viewing on the Allegheny County Health Department’s web site at www.achd.net/air/2014postercontest/.
