Dear Listserv members,

I really look forward each year to the NSC’s National Radon poster contest. However, I would like to know your thoughts on the “timing” of the event. It runs from mid-July to mid-October. I am wondering if the poster contest would have more participation if the contest was promoted between March and May of each year with the contest being conducted from September 1st to October 31st of each year.

With the current schedule of July to October, it seems to me that July, being the middle of summer – who’s in school then – no teachers or students, and September being the beginning of school where the teachers have the new school year to begin – they might overlook the NSC poster contest. I had only ONE entry last year, even though I sent it out to 88 schools.

Would better “timing” make for an increased participation among schools? If so, what “timing” for promotion and conducting the Poster Contest would you suggest?

Thank you for your thoughts on this issue.
