Pre­ven­tion Coali­tion selects WINNERS for the “Let’s Face It! Wear A Mask!” Contest! 
 
 
We want to thank our pre­ven­tion part­ners: San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion, Coali­tion for Orcas Youth, Lopez Island Pre­ven­tion Coali­tion, and Kings Mar­ket for sup­port­ing these efforts!
 
Our Rock Sol­id youth stepped up to help encour­age their peers to wear a mask/­face-cov­er­ing while in pub­lic, as our Health Offi­cer Dr. Frank James men­tioned dur­ing a Board of Health meet­ing back in June.
 
Luke Finch­er, a Rock Sol­id leader, came up with the idea to offer a vir­tu­al fair booth activ­i­ty to cre­ate a mask, too! As you may know, usu­al­ly, the San Juan Island Pre­ven­tion Coalition’s fair booth activ­i­ty is to cre­ate a healthy mes­sage t‑shirt. COVID-19 has chal­lenged us all to adapt and be creative!
 
We are thrilled with the reach of this social media cam­paign, “Let’s Face It. Wear A Mask!” con­test with over 10,000 San Juan Coun­ty res­i­dents see­ing this pro­mo­tion on Insta­gram and Facebook!
 
We all know these are new and dif­fer­ent times, and the sci­ence sup­ports the ben­e­fits of wear­ing a mask/­face-cov­er­ing when in pub­lic. Our youth are lead­ing the way! Thanks again to those that helped sup­port this cam­paign and for those that entered the con­test! You are a pos­i­tive role model!
