MHCA would like to invite our member facilities to participate in the "Making Headlines in Long Term Care" annual facility involvement contest.  Take this opportunity to show others what "Made Headlines" at your facility during calendar year 2018.  If your facility was featured on the front page of a newspaper, what healthcare headlines would you want the community to read about?


Please read the following criteria very carefully, as this is what you will be judged on.

  • MHCA Member Facility
  •  1 sheet - 11 inch x 17 inch paper (white)
  •  Use one side only, portrait orientation
  •  Use a creative title for your newspaper which incorporates the name of your facility
  •  Facility name and full address should be located on the page
  •  News and events concerning your facility and residents must be from 2018
  •  Fill up the ENTIRE page
  •  Articles & stories about staff and resident involvement
  •  Try to include any facility or staff awards received in 2018
  •  Be sure to incorporate graphics and/or photos
  •  The page should look crisp and clean like a real newspaper
  • Be sure to check for spelling or grammatical errors
  •  You may submit only 1 entry in either the Color Category or Black and White Category
  • (judged separately)
  • MAIL your newspaper cover to the Association Office, 236 Metro Drive, Jefferson City, MO 65109 PRIOR TO February 28, 2019 to ensure we will receive it in time.  If you are running short on time, you may also email your document as a .pdf file to no later than March 4, 2019.  It will be printed in our office on the required paper outlined above and submitted for judging. 
  • Remember, be creative and unique
