Time to apply for 2013 NCDHM Harris Awards

April 23, 2012

The ADA and Oral Health America are accepting applications for 2013 National Children’s Dental Health Month Samuel D. Harris Awards.

The awards recognize programs that promote oral health awareness and education for preschool and school-aged children during National Children’s Dental Health Month.

Up to two grants and a total of $4,000 will be awarded. State and local dental societies and community-based organizations are eligible.

Grant committee members will include representatives from the ADA, OHA and Samuel D. Harris family. The committee will evaluate applications on originality, creativity and innovation; sustainability of the program after the funding period; and ease of duplication/replication by other programs.
