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 2017.  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
  •  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 2017
  •  Fill up the ENTIRE page
  •  Articles & stories about staff and resident involvement
  •  Try to include any facility or staff awards received in 2017
  •  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 enter your page in Color format or Black and White format (judged separately)
  • If entering in both color categories, the newspaper entries CANNOT be identical
  •  Make sure the finished product is laminated or provide another form of protective covering.
  •  MAIL your newspaper cover to the Association Office, 236 Metro Drive, Jefferson City, MO 65109 PRIOR TO February 28, 2018 to ensure we will receive it in time.  You are also welcome to bring your newspaper the day of the event, however, we must have it BEFORE the judging begins at 8:30 a.m.
  • Remember, be creative and unique

For reference and to give you an idea of how to set up your headline newspaper cover, please review the winning entries from last year below.  Please click here to download and fill out the entry form.


We will be awarding the following prizes for our winning facilities:

The winning pages will be displayed on the MHCA website following the Mid-Year Conference and copies will also be displayed at the Annual Convention in August 2018.
