The above numbers are the largest that Cherokee County has had in the county or competing at District since I arrived in September 2008.


The theme for the 2013 poster contest is “Healthy Holidays”. Five places will be awarded in each age division. 

Participants in the poster contest do not have to be entered in the Food Show nor be present to win! No entry fee or pre-registration is required to participate in this contest.

There is no limit to the number of posters that each county can enter; however, each child is limited to one poster.  The poster must be on a poster board that measures 28”x22”.  NO FOAM BOARD OR OTHER MATERIALS PLEASE.  The posters will be judged on creativity and the nutritional message that the poster conveys.  This contest is open to all age divisions.  We will give a ribbon to the top five places in each age division as appropriate.

The following information must be included on the back of each poster:

            Contestant Name:
            Age Division:

If this information is missing from the poster, it will not be judged.  Please submit a list of entries the day of the event to the Poster Contest Coordinator so that we will have a complete list of entries.

If you have questions regarding the Food show, contact me at the e-mail or phone number below.

All posters are due in the Cherokee County Extension office by Thursday, January 31 @ 5 PM.
