FIGHT THE BITE Contest Helps Area Schools

The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District’s annual Fight the Bite Design a Calendar page contest for local students in grades K-12 is going on now!

In an effort to inform the community about mosquitoes and West Nile virus prevention, the contest encourages kids to creatively design a calendar page inspiring everyone to practice any or all of the District 7 D’s of Mosquito Prevention.

Since many area schools are struggling with budget cuts, this year, aside from prizes for individual winners, a cash prize will also be awarded to the classrooms of the winning students. There will be three first place classroom prizes of $450 each, to be used on educational supplies.

Winning entries will be made into a calendar and distributed at District activities.  Contest entries are due to District offices by 3 p.m. on March 31. Visit to download a form and see complete contest details.
