MRSA education competition

PHILADELPHIA - October 3, 2008 - Independence Blue Cross, The Health Care Improvement Foundation and The Franklin Institute are teaming up for "Students Fight MRSA!"

It's an effort to raise awareness of MRSA among students grades 3-12 through a creative web contest.

Organizers say, MRSA has become a serious health issue for schools across the country, and outbreaks have resulted in fear, school closures, illnesses and even death.

The contests ends January 31, 2009 and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Franklin Institute.

Sponsors are offering cash prizes totaling more than $8,000 and the opportunity for the winning entries to be used in a broad MRSA awareness campaign.
