Thank you to all those who have entered the Picture YOU Healthy challenge! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the quality of pictures that have been submitted over the past three weeks have been phenomenal! It’s clear that you have all put in a lot of thought to the photos you’ve submitted and have hopefully had a lot of fun thinking about what healthy eating, physical activity and building healthy communities means to you!

Now that the challenge has closed to new entries, it’s time to VOTE for our winner! And we need your help! Visit the Picture YOU Healthy photo album on the Northern Health Facebook page to see the Top Ten entries (as voted on my an internal NH group) – the picture with the most LIKES on our Facebook page by the end of day March 31 will win our grand prize: a Canon Powershot SX50HS digital camera with accessories (valued over $400)!
