Fourth-grader wins poster contest

January 19, 1995

Fourth-grader Ashley Zaleski of Broadneck Elementary School has won the 1995 Epilepsy Prevention/Bicycle Poster Contest sponsored by the Epilepsy Association of Maryland.

The theme of Ashley's poster is "Wheels and Helmets Go Together." She competed against 426 fourth-graders from 25 Maryland schools.

Ashley will receive a bicycle helmet at a 9 a.m. ceremony Tuesday in her class. The association staff also will perform a Kids on the Block puppet show that explains epilepsy to children.

The association has reproduced Ashley's poster into bookmarks and larger posters, which will be distributed to state legislators, schools and libraries. State legislators will consider mandatory bicycle helmet laws during this year's legislative session.
