‘Make it Snappy’ Competition
King’s Oral Health Promotion Team are seeking to capture the creativity of local children living in either Lambeth, Southwark or Lewisham, with a competition to promote looking after teeth in our community. Be as creative as you like!
Children today are still experiencing high levels of tooth decay. Nearly a quarter of all 5 year old’s have 3-4 teeth affected, of which the majority are untreated Public Health England (PHE, 2019). The good news is tooth decay is preventable by:
- Twice daily brushing with a fluoride toothpaste
- Spitting and not rinsing your toothpaste out
- Reducing the amount and frequency we eat and drink sugar
- Visiting the dentist
There will be a winner drawn from each category. They will receive a £10 book voucher as well as a prize for their organisation (£20 worth of science and health themed books).
The competition is open to the following age categories:
- Early years (under 5’s)
- KS1 (5-7 yrs old)
- KS2 (7-11 yrs old)
Entries can include drawings, posters, poems, songs, short stories. Be as imaginative as you like. Your entry must just be themed around looking after teeth.
