The Fond du Lac Evening Lions Club along with the Wisconsin Lions Foundation and the Wisconsin Diabetes Prevention and Control Program is conducting a Healthy Halloween Contest.  The purpose is to gather ideas that will create an environment for all people to have a healthy Halloween.  It is also intended to increase awareness of diabetes risks, symptoms, complications and preventions in Wisconsin communities, with an emphasis on youth.

            Participants are encouraged to create an original idea that will encourage people to have a Healthy Halloween instead of collecting bags of sweets which can be considered unhealthy if consumed in excess.

            Cash prizes from $50 to $500 will be awarded to individual entries and to organized groups based upon judging criteria.  Entries will be judged on creativity and originality, addressing health education, diabetes prevention, potential ease for widespread use and safety.

            Entry forms must be postmarked by Oct. 31 and  are located at Pick n Save, Festival Foods and Piggly Wiggly stores and also on the Wisconsin Lions Foundation website wlf.info under Projects - Community Diabetes Education Project 8x11 poster or at fonddulaclions.org.
