Elder Creek Elementary School student Damion Saechao won first place in Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District’s “Fight the Bite” poster contest, K-3 division.

For winning, Damion was awarded $200 and Elder Creek received $400.

In an effort to teach children about mosquito prevention, the contest encourages kids to use art and creatively design a calendar page promoting the mosquito prevention theme to inspire everyone to practice safety.

“This year we received more than 3,300 entries and we are very impressed by the quality of the artwork submitted” said David Brown, District Manager. “The children are very talented and creative. We’re happy to know they can use art to convey the important message of protecting our community from mosquitoes and West Nile virus.”

Leonardo da Vinci eK-8 School’s Cisco Martinez won third place in the contest’s 7-12 category.
