arch 17 was a dino-mite day for Kuentz Elementary School kindergarten student Nicholas
Ortiz! In January, Nicholas designed a dinosaur-themed face mask and entered his “mask-terpiece” into Community First Health Plans Design-A-Mask Challenge. After tallying votes totaling more than 20,000, the winners were selected in five different age categories. Nicholas won his age category, Budding Artists, and was honored during a special award ceremony at his school.
During the award ceremony, Nicholas was presented with an award, and very soon, 1,000 of his T-Rex masks will be delivered to Kuentz Elementary! His classmates joined him for the celebration in the school library, including the virtual learners at home.
Community First Health Plans, the only locally owned and managed, non-profit health plan in the area, invited artists of all ages to create a unique face mask design to help encourage face mask wearing by making masks fun.
“Community First believes that keeping our community healthy is important. By wearing a face mask, you are helping to protect not only yourself, but your neighbors and loved ones, too,” said Judy

  Nicholas Ortiz shows off his winning face mask design, “Predators are dangerous, and so is COVID! Mask Up!”
Razo, Director, Corporate Communications & Marketing, Community First Health Plans. “Through this decorating contest, our goal was to encourage children in our community to wear masks by seeing it as a form of expression instead of as a task. And who better to design a mask that kids want to wear than other kids!”
