Tongue River High School Wins WCNHCP Media Campaign Contest
March 18, 2011 — A language arts class at Tongue River High School in Ranchester has been named grand champion of the Center for Nursing and Health Care Partnerships' (WCNHCP) first media campaign contest.
Shannon Moline's class was selected from 30 entries in a contest aimed at improving knowledge and interest in nursing as a career. Their ideas will be featured in a statewide media campaign that includes print and radio advertisements.
Burlington Junior High and Wright Junior/Senior High School were chosen as runner-up winners. Little Snake River Valley High School earned honorable mention. Three winning teams were selected for $800 in school supplies for the sponsoring teacher and $25 gift cards for each student team member. The grand champion team also received a trip to Warehouse Twenty-One in Cheyenne to develop its nursing campaign idea.
The mission of the WCNHCP, housed at the University of Wyoming, is to strengthen the nursing workforce through collaboration, communication and consensus to meet Wyoming's health care needs.
The media campaign contest was supported by the Wyoming Workforce Development Council and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
