Three children have been picked as winners of the First-Ever Infection Control Week Colouring Contest. The winners are: three-year-old Sarah Moyer, of Burnt River; four-year-old Spencer Keppie, of Omemee; and five-year-old Merissa Hansey, of Brighton.

The Haliburton County, Pine Ridge District Health Unit circulated colouring sheets to dozens of daycares in Haliburton County, Northumberland County, and the City of Kawartha Lakes to teach the importance of a healthy habit.

The Health Unit received 100 colouring sheets that were completed, and a number of the daycares used the colouring sheets as part of a lesson to teach children the importance of handwashing.  Public Health Nurse, Cassandra Johnston said the results of the first-ever colouring contest exceeded the Health Unit expectations.
