Fight the Bite! Poster Contest for Youth
Attention teachers and students, and parents!
The Division of Public Health, Communicable Disease Branch is excited to announce the return of the “Fight the Bite!”
campaign. We want you to help us educate the community about the prevention of vector-borne diseases by fighting
the bite! Ticks and mosquitoes cause a great deal of illness in North Carolina, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever,
Lyme disease, and La Crosse Encephalitis. We hope your participation will be both fun, and a valuable learning
If you are a parent or teacher of a participating student, please help them follow the instructions below to create their
posters and submit them on time. Students should design their posters with a clear message about how they plan to
“Fight the Bite!” and prevent tick and mosquito-borne illnesses.
