Jewelianna Nielsen needs the community’s help, and helping her couldn’t be easier.
The National Sun Wise Foundation Poster Contest is sponsored by the Huntsman Cancer Institute and holds enormous prize potential for Jewelianna and the community.
Jewelianna, a 12-year-old sixth grader from Creekview Elementary, was informed about the National Sun Wise Foundation Poster Contest by her teacher a little over a month ago. After hearing about the competition and its requirements, she was immediately interested. The purpose of the contest was for students to create a poster that would promote being safe in the sun. The basic requirement of the poster was to include five sun safety tips.
Jewelianna, along with many other Creekview students, decided to compete. When asked why she wanted to complete, she said that she wanted to win the iPad Mini that first place state winners are awarded. However, it was not just about the prize. Jewelianna said that her favorite part of the competition was “getting to see all the posters.”
After hours of organizing, cutting, pasting, and coloring, Jewelianna finished her poster and entered the competition. At the state competition, three Creekview students placed in the top 20 of 500 entries. Jewelianna placed first overall in the 4th-8th grade category, moving her into the final state competition. There, two contestants from 4th-8th grades, two from kindergarten-3rd, and one honorable mention student competed. Jewelianna again took first place, moving her into the national competition.
Jewelianna and Creekview Elementary would appreciate the community’s assistance in helping her win the National Sun Wise Foundation Poster Contest. If Jewelianna wins at the national level, $12,000 in equipment will be given to Creekview Elementary, and would include a Walt Disney World vacation for her family.
When asked about the trip to Disney World, Jewelianna was very excited for the chance to go. She said she has not been since she was three months old and wants to go now that she would remember the experience.
