POUGHKEEPSIE – The Dutchess County Tick Task Force, proclaimed May as Tick-borne Disease Awareness Month at the Dutchess County Legislature Board Meeting Monday night.

Donna Bolner, Legislator from District 13 and Chairwoman of the Tick Task Force, explains that the media contest is one way Dutchess County youth can become better aware of the dangers ticks pose to their families and pets.

Faith Christian Academy Eighth Graders, David Leino and DeAngelo Abadsidis were honored as winners of the “Be Tick Free” Video Competition at a recent meeting of the Legislature.  The goal of the contest was for students to learn how to prevent Lyme and other tick-borne diseases, and then use their digital media skills to teach others what they have learned. Middle and High School students were asked to create a 30- or 60-second live action or computer animated public service announcement on how to prevent tick-borne disease.

School officials, family, and friends were on hand as Dutchess County Legislator and Tick Task Force Chair, Donna Bolner and the Tick Task Force presented the FCA students with a gift certificate courtesy of the Dutchess County Tick Task Force. They also received a “Be Tick Free!” backpack with tick-bite prevention materials, a tick removal kit, and hand sanitizer.

Legislator Donna Bolner and the Tick Task Force are committed to efforts in controlling the tick population. The mission of the Tick Task Force is to develop long term goals and make recommendations to the Legislature in the efforts of understanding and safely controlling ticks and reducing Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases.
