In recognition of Medication Literacy Awareness Day, sponsored by Passport Health Plan by Molina Healthcare, the U of L Frazier Polypharmacy & Medication Management Program is hosting an Art, Essay & Infographic Contest. The contest is open to students in grades 5 through 12 in public, private, and home school programs in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

The contest aims to promote awareness on the importance of Medication Education and to inspire students to be a positive advocate for medication literacy with their family and within their community. The competition is an excellent opportunity for middle through high school students to showcase their artistic and creative talents. To have medication literacy, is to have essential knowledge and understanding about the medications you use, work with, and/ or interact with. Without medication literacy, it is difficult to use medications effectively and safely yourself or in society.

We encourage teachers and parents to make this contest a summer enrichment activity. Please discuss participation in this contest with your student, providing the opportunity to watch the online modules. We encourage students to consider personal experiences or events; conduct research on this topic. Students may have conversations with parents, grandparents, godparents, other relatives or friends to develop their entries.

The theme is Educate before you Medicate. Students entering the competition will refer to the Medication Education Program’s on-line modules relating to the Medication Literacy Checklist for inspiration for their submission. Your work should reflect your understanding of one or more of the Medication Literacy Checklist item(s).
