The Grand County Rural Health Network is launching its newest community resource, http://www.healthygrandcounty.org.

The goal of this website is find all your local health and support services in one place, online.

In partnership with Granby Elementary School’s 3rd grade classrooms, Grand County Rural Health Network created a “What is Healthy?” contest. Third-graders were directed to draw pictures about what healthy means to them. Examples of categories include: medical health, dental health, eye health, alternative health, financial support and health insurance, youth programs and activities, senior resources, public safety, community resources, parenting resources, public and environmental health, and exercise. These categories are the specific resource pages on our healthygrandcounty.org website.

The two grand prize winners are Kamron from Ms. Hill’s class who drew a picture about biking in our pristine mountains and Blaire from Mrs. Acker’s class who drew a collage illustrating many aspects of health.

Both of the grand prize winners won a $25 gift certificate to The Foundry.

The other top 10 winners, in no specific order, are Eli (from Ms. Hill’s class); Haley (Ms. Hill); Isiah (Ms. Hill); Luella (Ms. Hill); Silas (Ms. Hill); Jaiden (Mrs. McNertney); Joslynn (Mrs. McNertney); Anna (Ms. Hill); another Anna (Ms. Hill); and Samantha (Ms. Hill), all won a $10 gift certificate to iTunes or Subway.
