Section Activities/Benefits

23rd Annual APHA Public Health Materials Contest  

The APHA Public Health Education Health Promotion (PHEHP) section is soliciting your best health education, promotion and communication materials for the 23rd annual competition. The contest provides a forum to showcase public health materials during the APHA Annual Meeting and recognizes professionals for their hard work.

All winners will be selected by panels of expert judges prior to the 141st APHA Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. A session will be held at the Annual Meeting to recognize winners, during which one representative from the top materials selected in each category will give a presentation about their material.

Entries will be accepted in three categories: print materials, multi‐media materials, and training materials. Entries for the contest are due by May 26, 2013.

Please see announcement or for additional contest entry information or email us.

Section activities occur year-round, but it is the APHA Annual Meeting where Section leaders and members 'kick it into overdrive.' Each year, PHEHP sponsors  or co-sponsors scientific sessions, including both oral presentation and poster sessions (one of which is devoted solely to student submissions). PHEHP hosts a luncheon and an evening Social. Finally, Section Awards are conferred and winners of the Health Education Materials Contest are announced. Join us!
