Posted by Ralph Ranalli February 11, 2008 07:02 AM



Tara Stetter, a seventh-grader at King Philip Regional Middle School in Norfolk, has been chosen as the Boston-area winner of the "Influenza Ambassador Award," for her print
public service announcement about the flu, entitled "Forget Everything Your Parents Told You About Being a Good Host."

Stetter's entry will be posted on SpreadtheWordNotTheFlu.com, an informational web site sponsored by the pharmaceutical company Novartis, a leading maker of flu vaccines. The award also netted Stetter with an Apple Macbook laptop computer.
