Community Health Assessment 2022

Snohomish Health District is launching the next Community Health Assessment process. This process allows us to ask what the most important health issues and needs are for Snohomish County residents. 

In collaboration with a wide range of partners, our goal is to identify key areas of health our community can work to improve. Our previous Community Health Assessment was conducted in 2018.

The Snohomish Health District is holding an art contest to select cover art for the 2022 Community Health Assessment report. The winner of the contest will be selected by Snohomish Health District staff, will be featured on the cover of the final report and will receive a $200 stipend.

The prompt for the art piece is "What does a healthy community look like to you?"

This contest is open to any high school age student who lives and/or goes to school in Snohomish County. They may choose the medium they use to create their art, but it must be submitted in digital format with a file size no smaller than 1,000 KB (1 MB). Paintings, drawings, or three-dimensional art may be submitted as a scan or high-resolution photograph of the art piece. 

A graphic designer at the Health District will format the final cover featuring the winning art piece. The cover of the report is 8.5x11 in portrait layout (not landscape). The winning piece must fit and display well on that cover space.

The deadline for submissions is November 10, 2022. The winner will be notified by mid-December.
