HEALTH INFOGRAPHIC COMPETITION Presented by GOAL
Interact for Health and the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky are looking for creative and original infographics to describe important health issues in our region.
Submissions must focus on health issues affecting Kentucky, Ohio or regions within either state. Entrants are strongly encouraged to focus on the areas of interest of one or both organizations. Interact for Health promotes health in the areas of healthy eating, active living, mental and emotional well-being, and healthy choices about substance use. The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky focuses on improving the health of Kentucky’s children and making public policy more responsive.
An infographic is a visual representation of information that can be used to tell a story or make a point that is more compelling than words or data alone.
